Earlier this week IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz told reporters Israel could "not escape" a major ground incursion in Gaza aimed at rooting out the terror infrastructure in the coastal enclave.
The IAF launched an air strike on a terror cell in northern Gaza early Friday morning as it prepared to launch rockets at Israeli targets.
Both men had carried out rocket and mortar attacks in the preceding days and were reported by Israel's security services to be planning attacks along Israel's border with Egypt in the Sinai.
The IAF reported success in an air raid targeting a terror cell in Gaza preparing to launch rockets at Israel's southern communities.
Gantz's comments effectively confirmed that Israel's airstrikes-for-rockets strategy vis-a-vis Gaza has proved ineffective in providing security for the over 1 million Israeli citizens who live under the routine threat of rockets and mortars fired by terrorists at their communities.
Gantz said any such operation would be “quick and painful,” for Hamas and its terror confederates in Gaza.

Les get serious, if Israel stops receiving rockets from Palestinians(this may have been the case for some time who really knows), then they will go into Gaza/West Bank and fire them themselves, remember their motto "by way of deception thou shalt do war", ever since Israel was founded on its terrorist foundations they have been treating the Palestinians(christians/muslims/atheists alike) like animals, they've never wnated peace and certianly nothng has changed. Israel and its little dog America will keep bullying the world until the world fights back, unfortuantely I believe that is exactly what they want as they think they can beat us, but does that mean we lay down and play dead? Screw them
