IDF awaits ‘approval’ for new actions against Hamas

As Operation Protective Edge enters its third day, military sources are predicting “various scenarios” for Israel military action against Hamas in Gaza that are just “awaiting final approval,” according to Channel 2.

The aim of these scenarios? “To bring Hamas to the point where it says it will stop firing,” according  to the TV report. “The aim is not to have this conflict drag on too long.”

In the studio, the station’s Palestinian affairs reporter says he greatly doubts that Hamas “will raise the white flag.”
