Ya’alon: Israel still fighting War of Independence

Israel is still fighting its War of Independence, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said on Sunday, in reference to the ongoing wave of Palestinian terrorist attacks on Israelis, adding that calls by some political figures for a new West Bank operation are out of touch with the security realities on the ground.

Speaking to Israel Radio, the defense minister said the conflict with the Palestinians "did not start today and won’t end [tomorrow]," adding that Israel has known more severe waves of terrorism in the past.

"We are activating all of our capabilities to bring this to an end, and I believe we will succeed," Ya’alon said.
