    IDF preparing for major Gaza operation within months

    This ought to catch Hamas by surprise!

    Concern growing over anti-tank missile smuggling into the Strip; senior officer says Hamas, Islamic Jihad weaponry has grown significantly; Gov't hasn't ordered to launch operation, but army preparing to be at the ready.

    The IDF General Staff has ordered the Southern Command to prepare for a possible large Gaza operation that could occur within the next few months, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

    Preparations include finalizing operational plans and distributing them between the various units that would be deployed inside Gaza...

    The Gaza Division, under the command of Brig.-Gen. Yossi Bachar, is spearheading the preparations for such an operation, which senior officers said could be significantly larger than Cast Lead...

    I can't imagine any scenario where the IDF goes into Gaza when the real problem now is the Sinai.

    It's a kinda sacred cow now - nobody would want to fire the first shot in the Sinai. Or rather be blamed for that. I am sure Israel trades very carefully in the sinai - and so does the Brotherhood

    I can see the anti semitic protesters who disguise themselves as left wing "peace" warriors burning israeli flags around the world, calling israels actions in gaza war crimes, and crimes against poor innocent defencless civillians, it makes me sick, its horrific how these scum will turn out in droves to protest against israel defend itself, yet Not one protest from these scum regarding syrian war crimes 5500+ dead at the hands of terrorist bashir al assad.
    its double standards at its most worst.
