Netanyahu: IDF should plan for forceful operation in Gaza

Senior political sources close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he has ordered the defense establishment to conduct a "continues, long and forceful operation in Gaza."


According to the source, Netanyahu told the IDF to go "all the way," saying "even a ground operation was currently on the table." According to them, such an operation was far from certain, but that the operation's goal was to increase deterrence and deal Hamas a significant blow.
