Gazan Palestinian Arab terrorists rocket attacks on civilian centers
An Egyptian government official quoted in the London-based al Hayat paper (he's un-named in the report we saw) warned the Gaza regime today that continued escalation and rocket fire directed at Israeli cities could prompt a military operation in the Strip. Egypt, he said "cannot continue pushing the Israeli side and prevent it from striking Gaza, especially when the other Palestinian factions are not committed to keeping the lull."
The former head of Israel's security services (Shin Bet chief) Avi Dichter (today a member of Knesset in the Kadima party) is quoted today saying "Israel will be forced to reconquer Gaza and disband the terror infrastructure if no other political solution is reached with the help of neighboring countries."
