Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon warned Tuesday that Hamas did indeed sign a pact with Mahmoud Abbas, but only from a position of weakness and because it was the best option available.. “But make no mistake, Hamas is also getting ready to fight us, training forces and piling up missiles and rockets, thousands of which are pointing at Israel.” Ya’alon was talking to IDF commanders on a tour of inspection of the Gaza Front with Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz.
