An Israeli security chief called for the military to prepare a major Gaza Strip sweep. Shin Bet director Yuval Diskin told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in a briefing Tuesday that unless the relatively moderate Palestinian faction Fatah is bolstered in Gaza to offset the power of the governing terrorist group Hamas, Israel may have to strike strongly and pre-emptively against Hamas arms stockpiling.
