Former Intelligence Chief Predicts Gaza Operation
Arutz Sheva ^ | 5/7/14 | Orly Harari, Tova Dvorin

Former military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin rejected criticism over a lack of deterrence against Hamas on Saturday, insisting that the only reason rockets have not reached Be'er Sheva and Tel Aviv is due to the threat of IAF retaliation.

"It is not true that there is no deterrence," Yadlin stated. "Hamas can fire hundreds of rockets at Tel Aviv and Beersheba, and does not actually do so."

Despite this, Yadlin admitted that another operation in Gaza is likely on the horizon.

"I have no doubt we are looking at another round with Hamas," admitted Yadlin. "It will be very difficult."

"Hamas will be battered but Israel will pay the price," he predicted, adding that Israel is likely to suffer economic damage and several casualties.

"We will go into action when Hamas crosses the line, and the next round will be significant and will combine air and ground campaigns," he added.

Build up in the North
Swing around to the flanks
Join hands in the South
And you're winning the six-hour war

All their human shields
Will face the wrong way
You cut off supplies
Win in less than a day

It's clean and humane
Why, it's even "restrained"
Olmert could have done it
With just half a brain
So cut all the crap
And start planning the six-hour war.
