Ya’alon: Criticism of Gaza operation not consistent with situation on the ground

Ahead of the publication of a UN Human Rights Council commission report on last summer’s war between Israel and Hamas, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon Monday defended the IDF’s conduct.

"The criticism on the results of the operation are not consistent with the situation on the ground," he said of the military’s Operation Protective Edge against the Palestinian Islamist organization.

Ya’alon was the latest Israeli official to come out against the pending UN report that is expected to be very critical of Israel’s actions in last summer’s Gaza offensive.
