Not Afraid to Go Back In

An IDF soldier was killed and three others wounded, one seriously, this morning by a bomb which exploded under their vehicle. They were doing a routine patrol along the border with Gaza.

The IDF responded by going into Gaza again. IDF helicopters went in and shot down a Hamas terrorist in Khan Younis (a refugee camp not far from where the incident happened.)

On IDF radio they are discussing how intense the response must be to other incidents of this sort. In the past (before the Gaza war) the response by the IDF was much too tepid, according to many, and that is why we suffered from years of rockets raining down on our cities.

The Israeli people don’t have the stomach for that anymore. The upcoming elections will show this very clearly.
