The IDF's plan for a large scale military operation in Gaza has four major aims, according to Channel 2's defense correspondent. These are:

• To halt rocket fire from Gaza
• To diminish smuggling through the Gaza-Egypt border
• To weaken, and perhaps topple, the Hamas regime
• A complete disengagement from Gaza

The timing for the operation has not yet been set, according to the report.
