Israeli regime admits Gaza mission not realized

The Israeli regime’s Economy Minister Naftali Bennett has complained that the Zionist mission in the Gaza Strip has not been realized, as a new ceasefire temporarily halts the regime's month-long offensive against the impoverished enclave.

Bennett said on Sunday that Israel’s military operation in Gaza, the so-called Operation Protective Edge, has not achieved its objectives.

This is while the Israeli military last week posted the phrase “mission accomplished” on twitter in reference to the Israeli war on Gaza. The Israeli military claimed that it had destroyed 32 tunnels during the four-week aggression.

A new ceasefire came into effect on Monday following an agreement between Israel and the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

Some 1,940 Palestinians, including 470 children, have been so far killed and nearly 10,000 others injured in the Israeli military aggression against Gaza, which began on July 8.

Gaza has been blockaded by the Israeli regime since June 2007. The enclave’s northern Erez crossing has been controlled by the Tel Aviv regime and its southern Rafah crossing by Egypt; both crossings are closed.

Palestinians have been forced to dig tunnels under the crossings to bring basic goods like construction materials, food, and fuel into the coastal enclave.
