The tough statement by Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, coupled with Kerry’s inability to broker even a temporary cease-fire after a week of shuttling around the region, signaled the fighting is likely to drag on, with more than 820 Palestinians and 38 people in Israel killed so far.

In a statement issued shortly after Kerry spoke at a press conference in Cairo, Yaalon’s office quoted him telling troops in the field that “you need to be ready for the possibility that very soon we will instruct the military to significantly broaden the ground operation in Gaza.”

“Hamas is paying a very heavy price and will pay an even heavier price,” Yaalon said. “At the end of the operation, Hamas will have to think very hard if it is worth it to taunt us in the future.”

Have a good Shabbos and keep on davening. There was a report today that a soldier felt that he was shot, but couldn't find where he was injured. Then, he noticed that there was a bullet in his grenade - and the grenade did not go off.

So, daven and we hope our Tefillos are answered.
