50 days of war in Gaza likely to cost Israel dearly

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks at a press conference in Jerusalem, on August 27, 2014Israel may be painting a victorious picture of the war in Gaza, but 50 days of fighting looks set to cost it dearly on the political, economic and diplomatic fronts. Under attack by hawks in his cabinet for accepting a ceasefire which ended the violence on Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has seen his popularity plummet as the military operation, which began on July 8, dragged on for seven weeks. Such matters are to be discussed, along with Israel’s demand for Gaza militants to disarm, at a new round of talks which will take place in Cairo within the coming month. On the military front, Netanyahu also outlined Israel’s achievements – the destruction of a network of attack tunnels and the elimination of “approximately 1,000 terrorists,” among them senior military commanders.
