IDF Maj. Gen. (res.) Yaakov Amidror said that the Israeli government is currently deciding whether to go to war with Hamas in light of the escalating tensions. “Although we have only used air force and artillery so far without ground forces, this is an option which might take place in the next few days,” he said.

“It is clear that a ground forces operation is more complicated, as it would result in many more casualties on both the Palestinian side and the Israeli side.”

He added that using accurate intelligence, the IDF will continue to minimize civilian casualties on the Palestinian side.
