Israel's military chief of staff warned Tuesday that the repeated rounds of escalated violence in the south would eventually require Israel to carry out another large-scale military operation in Hamas-controlled Gaza.

"We cannot continue with one round after another," the official, Lt Gen Benny Gantz, told a closed meeting of the Parliament's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. He said the point at which a military operation would become necessary was "drawing closer."

General Gantz's assessment came during a routine security briefing to the parliamentary committee.
