Anger and confusion in Israel over incomplete captive release: Analyst

Mairav Zonszein, of the International Crisis Group, tells Al Jazeera that there is “extreme anger” among the families of captives still in Gaza and the Israeli public at large over Prime Minister Netanyahu’s decision to resume military operations.

“The government doesn’t seem to be providing a clear plan not only on how to bring back the hostages, but on how to secure a victory,” she said.

Even with growing calls for the Israeli prime minister to step down, Zonszein said Netanyahu is in a strong position and will likely be able to remain in his seat.

But, she added: “If Israel isn’t able to provide achievements in this operation, I think Israelis will lose more and more of their patience, and there’s also hundreds of thousands of reservists currently [called up to] the army and the economy is being hurt.”

There is an “internal time limit” on Israel’s war on Gaza, Zonszein said.
