Will Israel launch a ground offensive to crush Hamas?

The sad truth is that Israel will never have peace as long as Hamas exists, but, will politics get in the way? Or will Israels military be allowed to finish this?

YNET NEWS – IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz said Friday that the military was ready for a possible ground offensive in the Gaza Strip, and was awaiting instructions from the political leadership.

“Nothing is stopping us from moving forward,” Gantz said during a tour of a Paratroopers training base. “The IDF is not waiting for the last straw to go on a ground offensive, it’s waiting on political instruction.”

Terrorists “in Gaza are understanding that they’ve made a big mistake. In four days we’ve been intelligently using our offensive means while remembering that there are civilians there that Hamas has turned into hostages,” Gantz said. “Gaza is slowly sinking to its doom.”

The chief of staff noted that “the air offensive is excellent and we have intelligence that works. We have what to attack, and we will intensify the attacks. We’ve yet to exhaust our offensive capabilities.”
