The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff has just filed a bleak analysis. Sorry.
The bottom line; “Hamas will find it hard to end the fighting without a significant achievement. But such an achievement — the opening of the borders, for instance — is not at hand. Egypt has no desire to come to its aid. Israel has no intention of freeing prisoners.
“And so after quite a few bad days for Israel and for Gaza, worse days still seem to lie ahead.”
