Decision on Gaza Op Made; Israel Seeking Int’l Support

Right now Israel has to work towards getting international legitimization for an operation in Gaza, a senior Israeli source in Tel Aviv told Israeli electronic site Ynet on Sunday.

"(Israel's) actions depend only on the tactical conditions and the operational possibilities," added the source. "Israel will react with all due force to any provocation by Hamas."

Following various security assessments by the Israeli defense establishment, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Ehud Barak met secretly last Thursday and decided that Israel would no longer practice a policy of restraint in view of terror attacks emanating from the Strip, opting instead for a scaled reaction.

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni was briefed on the decision shortly after it was made.
