Olmert: I won't let Gaza become another Lebanon

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert ruled out a widespread military operation in the Gaza Strip, but promised that the situation there would not deteriorate to resemble the situation in south Lebanon.

 

"I have no intention of closing my eyes, like Israel closed its eyes on Lebanon. We must deal with (Gaza) wisely; I don't think using massive military force is the right way," Olmert said.
