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.
