Likud MK: Israeli Ground Offensive in Gaza Would Have Hurt Push on Iran

Speaking to supporters in West Bank settlement of Beit El, Ze'ev Elkin says he believes next Netanyahu cabinet will be less rightist than the current one.

There was no reason for Israel to launch a ground offensive in Gaza since the country should focus its efforts on the Iranian threat, Likud MK Ze'ev Elkin reportedly said in a conversation with Israeli settlers on Saturday.
