Odds of Gaza ground op said ‘very high’

A senior Israeli military official tells The New York Times that the likelihood of an Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip is “very high.”

The official says that an invasion would only take a matter of days or weeks and is “not a huge challenge.”

“If you want to efficiently fight terrorism you must be present, boots on the ground,” the official tells the US paper.

According to Channel 2, Israel will wait on a ground invasion until it sees the results of Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire.
