As diplomatic efforts to end the Gaza bloodshed gain pace, Israel may have managed to weaken Hamas' firepower, but it is far from achieving a full demilitarization of the Palestinian enclave, experts say.After 17 days of an unrelenting offensive against Hamas in Gaza, Israel faces a race against time to complete its mission of destroying the tunnels by which Hamas fighters can reach Israeli territory.Israel has arrested nearly 150 Palestinian militants in Gaza.If Israel wants to win the war, not simply this battle, it must make sure this round of violence is the last, Eiland suggested.
