Subject: “Operation Cast Lead” – Thank you
Operation Cast Lead has concluded and during this time of reflection, we would like to thank you for your cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs during the operation.
We assign great importance to your activities, and recognize your joining the national cause and the positive results that have transpired due to your contribution to the field of advocacy.
In these weeks after the operation, there still exists a need for intensive advocacy, where the shift from the military arena to the political front and battle for awareness holds many complicated challenges.
At this time, we are in the process of examination and consolidation in regard to exploring activities that are suited to the current climate and will continue to update you.
Thank you again for your resolve to assist and for your effective and valuable operations.
With blessings and esteem,
Deputy Director General for Media and Public Affairs
