Day 28 of Operation Protective Edge

PREAMBLE: Operation Protective Edge enters its 28th day, with the IDF redeploying its troops in and around Gaza, as it nears the end of its mission demolishing the 30-plus Hamas terror tunnels dug under the border.

Ceasefire talks are taking place in Egypt, but Israel isn’t there, having declared that it does not trust Hamas to honor any agreement. This, after Hamas breached a truce on Friday morning and killed three IDF soldiers, including Givati office Hadar Goldin, who was initially believed kidnapped. Goldin was laid to rest Sunday, at a funeral attended by some 15,000 people.

Meanwhile, Israel was slammed for allegedly striking a UNRWA school, killing 10; the IDF said it fired on terrorists on motorcycles near the school, and that it was looking into the incident. And Hamas was still firing dozens of rockets at Israel.
