Channel 2’s diplomatic correspondent reports there is a “growing sense” that Israel is being dragged toward a ground offensive. He quotes an unnamed senior source saying “we can’t on for long with these tit-for-tat Hamas rocket strikes and Israeli air attacks.”
He says people in Netanyahu’s circle are “starting to talk about an incursion into Gaza to try to strip Hamas of its terrorist infrastructure.”
Is this possible, Segal asks? And answers yes. Will it cost a heavy price? Yes, again.
But both Israel and Hamas, he concludes, are now saying they are not prepared to go back to the understandings that preceded this conflict.
