The Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said on Tuesday the offensive her government are conducting against the Gaza Strip is serving both the Israeli and the "Moderate Palestinians" interest.

The Israeli online daily Haaretz said that Livni made her comments during a speech she gave in front of a delegation by the American Jewish Committee currently visiting Israel.  

The Israeli official added that the Israeli government is "willing to dialogue with the moderate but uses force with the extremists"  

The Palestinian President announced last week the halt of negotiations with the Israeli government in protest of the ongoing attack by the Israeli military on Gaza.  

The Israeli Army embarked on its military offensive on Saturday, December 27th, 2008. Israeli warplanes began the military operation by shelling every possible Palestinian security posts in Gaza. In the following days, the air raids were expanded; hospitals, homes, blacksmith workshops, schools, mosques, ambulances, media and UN relief efforts were targeted.    

Day and night, the entire Palestinian coastal region has been under attack. On Saturday, January 3rd, 2009, Israeli ground forces entered the Gaza strip and have since divided Gaza into two sections. The Israeli government decided on Sunday night to intensify its operation in Gaza and extend hostilities to "phase three".    

Today the Israeli Defence Minister Ehod Barak affirmed that his army will continue its offensive in Gaza, he told Israeli media that "we respect the UN but we are continuing with the Gaza operation"   The Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip continues despite diplomatic efforts and United Nations Security Council calling for an immediate, durable and fully respected cease-fire.  

The UN resolution 1860, which passed with a majority of 14 votes with the United States abstaining from voting, did not add to the Egyptian-French initiative calling for immediate cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.
