We will not accept violence or incitement.
What we saw here crossed all boundaries.
Apparently, some civilians were killed, and we are very sorry about that. We did not expect such results and if we had known ... we might would have aborted the mission.
The military rule that began with the Six-Day War ends today. I hope that the departure of our forces from the Gaza Strip symbolizes the beginning of a period of tranquillity.
The forced evacuation begins tomorrow.
What we saw here was a breaking of all the boundaries that we worked so hard to maintain over the past few days. We will deal with the full severity of the law with these people who desecrated the synagogue and went berserk and injured officers.
