Levant News | Another Israel-Gaza War About to Start?

Levant NewsLevant News – according to Israeli sources, the killing of the Hamas military chief was in response to 128 rockets being fired into southern Israel. The Hamas response has been to fire a further 95 rockets into southern Israel. Currently, Israel is responding by targeting military installations within Gaza in order to prevent this response. They say that as Hamas locates these installations within civilian areas there will be civilian casualties.

Israel appears to be preparing to enter Gaza and to start another Israel-Gaza war, possibly to weaken Hammas’s ability to join any Israel-Iran war that might start in the near future.  Cynics point to impending January election in Israel being at the centre of this current action and the fact that oil prices are not rocketing (excuse pun) would seem to support this.
