I could have told you that. In fact, I did.
‘Gaza War Number Four is Just a Matter of Time’
By Ido Ben-Porat, Ari Yashar
A rocket from Gaza was shot down as it streaked towards the Eshkol Regional Council area on Friday night and apparently landed in the region, in the second such attack since the August 26 ceasefire ended Operation Protective Edge.
According to Chaim Yelin, chair of the Eshkol Regional Council, it’s only a matter of time until the next operation against Hamas, of which ProtectiveEdge was already the third since Israel’s 2005 withdrawal from the Gaza Strip.
“It doesn’t make a difference to us who fires,” Yelin told Arutz Sheva. “Hamas or rebellious groups; we demand a military response against rocket fire on the residents of the state of Israel.”
Yelin said he is convinced that rockets will soon be pummeling the center of the country as they did during the operation, saying “the hourglass has already turned ahead of the next war.”
“Today it’s in Eshkol, tomorrow in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and the military and diplomatic response needs to be appropriate,” said Yelin. “The military achievement of Protective Edge is dissipating, with no national outline to give true quiet to the residents of the south and residents of the state of Israel.”
