Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich said in a special Ynet Live broadcast that "Taking down Hamas was not part of the goals of Operation Pillar of Defense. Hitting its rockets has been harmful for Hamas and other terror organizations. Regaining both deterrence abilities and peace for residents of the south are achievable goals."
Yachimovich added that "So far we've had many achievements but there's more to be done. Those who promise to eliminate terror for ever delude themselves." (Ynet)
