The former head of Mossad who had initially opposed the war,has now concluded that Israel will have to stay years in Gaza to achieve their goal of neutralising Hamas. The war continue to expand and more and more Gazans, mostly civilians are killed and wounded. Nowhere is safe, not UN facilities; not schools; not the beach; not the market place and most certainly not homes. All are targeted. None is spared not even little babies.
There is another "hidden and unstated" reason for wanting to re-occupy Gaz. It is the gas fields off-shore ( which the Gazans were not allowed to develop). Israel has always decried the fact that " God" did not give them any oil and gas. Here is a solution to that " oversight".
So Gaza will move from the largest " open-air prison" to an "occupied open-air prison", where the Gazans will be under a new and more degrading oppression. They will not be cowed, thesE Gazans. They will continue to resist and Israel will pay a huge price for "Netanyahu's Folly".
