      Senior IDF Source: Expect 'Cast Lead 2'


      After Hamas and Islamic Jihad co-signed a statement taking responsibility for the 55-rocket barrage fired into southern Israel over the Simchat Torah holiday, a senior IDF source said Israel has no choice but to launch a wide-scale military operation against Gaza. The source told Maariv/NRG that the operation would include a large-scale ground incursion, not unlike the one undertaken in Operation Cast Lead in late 2008 and early 2009.
