IDF starts Gaza ground offensive

   


After days of waiting and deliberation, Netanyahu on Thursday night directed the IDF to send ground troops into Gaza, (supposedly) “to strike the terror tunnels into Israel.” Signaling that the initial phase of the ground attack would be limited, a statement put out by the PMO said Netanyahu and Ya’alon directed the IDF to prepare to expand the ground operation.

The statement said the security cabinet approved the operation after Israel agreed to the Egyptian cease-fire proposal on Tuesday, which Hamas rejected. In addition, the statement said, Hamas even fired rockets during Thursday’s five-hour humanitarian cease-fire. The dramatic decision followed, by less than 24 hours, a (supposed) attempted massive attack by 13 “terrorists”, who burrowed into Israel through a tunnel near Kibbutz Sufa, but were discovered and repelled.
