Isn’t it way past time for Israel to start retaliating with “disproportionate” force? Israel could destroy Gaza in about 15 minutes or less if it wanted to.
The IDF is reporting that over 300 rockets had been fired from the coastal enclave, injuring at least 16 people, including a 19-year-old soldier who remained in critical condition.
Israel National News Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, and the military leaders plan an attack in response to the launching of over 300 rockets from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. Sources say the IDF has been given a green light to launch a heavy retaliation against Hamas and other terrorist groups in Gaza.
The decision comes as UN and Egyptian mediators attempt to resto calm and convince Hamas to halt the rocket attacks. Despite their efforts, rockets continue to fall on Israel. The IDF has struck about 70 targets in Gaza in response to the continuing rocket attacks.
