Israel planning “well studied” military strikes against Gaza

NAZARETH, (PIC)– Israeli military sources said that the army was planning to level well studied military strikes against selective targets in the Gaza Strip rather than engage in all-out war.

A Hebrew paper quoted sources in Israel’s southern military command as saying that the strikes would target arms caches, money smuggling routes, and Rafah tunnels that are being used to smuggle weapons into the Strip in the absence of Egyptian monitoring of the borders. The sources did not rule out targeted strikes outside Gaza.

The sources said that Israel relayed its concern to Cairo over the Gaza border conditions and that it would not allow any threat against its security. The sources pointed to the recent Palestinian resistance’s alleged firing of Grad rockets at Beer Sheba and Netviot.

Israeli press reports said that Cairo was not pleased with the Israeli threat to strike Gaza.
