Sounds like more of the same - I don't think a Cast-Lead type operation is in the cards at the moment. Of course, that changes if the rocket fire continues from Gaza. But if Hamas quiets down, then this round may be about over.
Well, yeah. A Gaza operation would be incredibly complex and risky -- all the more considering the kind of limitations IDF normally oprates under, both because of their own values and because of ridiculously biased world "commiunity" and envious banana republics & tyrants that comprise the General Assembly.
Thank to moronic, sold-out Kadima left-wingers in Israel and the pressure exerted on them by Washington DC and Brussels in 2005.... Gaza is basically world's biggest terror hub. With Philadelphi Corridor unsecured, the Iranian, Lybian, Muslim Bros Egyptian, Qatari arms just flowing there nonstop.
Israel periodically bombs an arms convoy from Sudan or weapons factory, but that's just papering over a deeper problem.
To remove literally DOZEN terror groups vying in control for Gaza, Israel would have to re-occupy Gaza if only temporarily.
That's a hellacious task for even a modern army like IDF. Normally, Gaza would have to be bombed for a month to "soften" the jihadis, but the hypocritical world will never allow Israel to do that.
So IDF would have to find a way to chop up Gaza into sectors while volleys of Kornet, Igla, Metis-M, snipers hiding behind civilians and all manner of mines & IEDs are literally everywhere.
Fallujah-style warfare is no picnic even for a juggernaut like the US. And Gaza is 10 times more complicated than Fallujah -- if only because the US can do whatever the fuck it wants because it's a superpower, while Israel simply is now allowed to. Fair's got nothing to do with it. It's reality.
