Jerusalem - Israel’s aerial assault on the Gaza Strip on Wednesday could draw cross-border Palestinian rocket attacks and stretch into days of fighting, including a ground offensive if required, the Israeli military said.

“The days we face in the south will, in my estimation, prove protracted,” Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai told Channel 2 TV after Israeli air strikes killed the military chief of Gaza’s Hamas government. “The homefront must brace itself resiliently.”

Mordechai said Israel was both responding to a surge in Palestinian rocket salvoes earlier this week and trying to prevent Hamas and other Palestinian factions from building up their arsenals further.

Among the targets of Wednesday’s air strikes were underground caches of longer-range Hamas rockets, he said.

Asked if Israel might send ground forces into Gaza, Mordechai said: “There are preparations, and if we are required to, the option of a entry by ground is available.”

If Hamas would actually get jobs for all of those young men in the photos, everyone would be a lot better off. The Palestinians would be able to provide for themselves and not have time to shoot rockets at Israel. Instead, Hamas keeps these men in the "victim/refugee" mindset and nothing ever gets done.

Go in strong, not weak.
May Hashem keep your bullets and missiles accurate.
Do not fear them, for Gd is not with them.
The Gd of Abraham Issac and Jacob is with you.
As are your Jewish brethren around the world.
Think of the six million.

"Israel’s aerial assault ... could draw cross-border Palestinian rocket attacks"
Really? isn't that what the "aerial assault" is all about? the current "cross-border Palestinian rocket attacks?"
Anti-Semites.
