SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) —"Israeli" Defense Minister said that should the Zionist cabinet give the order, the occupation forces could overrun Gaza strip.
Talking at a conference on the ‘Operation Cast Lead’, Barak said: “If the cabinet deems it needed, the IDF (occupation forces) can conquer and rule Gaza.”
Elaborating on the 2009 military campaign against Gaza, Barak noted that "there was no need to drag the fighting for 22 days. That lesson is true for other things as well."
Barak also noted that the "Israeli" forces’ withdrawal from the Strip was late: "We could have pulled out 10 days earlier.”
The "Israeli" minister avoided talking about a possible strike against Iran. He said that the Zionist entity "must maintain a clear vision when setting its targets and the private discussion on the matter must be honest."—www.shafaqna.com/English
