IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi said on Monday that the IDF will "not hesitate" to enter another round of fighting in Gaza if violence along the border continues. In a ceremony held on Monday in honor of the arrival of the new INS "Victory" warship to the Israel Navy, Kohavi noted IDF had already begun preparing for another operation when Operation Guardian of the Walls ended in May. "We have improved and are continuing to improve our capabilities in the Gaza Strip, as well as our operational activities," said the Chief of Staff.

"If peace isn't restored in the south we will not hesitate to enter another round," warned Kohavi. "If it's needed, I know the navy is prepared to take a central role, as it successfully took in Operation Guardian of the Walls," Kohavi added. Kohavi went on to address Palestinians, stating their "reality could be completely different and their quality of life can considerably improve."
