The head of the IDF Planning Directorate, Maj. Gen. Nimrod Sheffer, who’s been negotiating indirectly with Hamas, through the Egyptians, knows all that, and he will sweeten and hasten the deal as required. Israel does not want more war.
Since November, the IDF has avoided conducting a major ground maneuver in the south, so as not to provoke Hamas into launching new rockets.
As we’ve seen back at the conclusion of the November clashes, Israel will go a very long way to keep Hamas happy. Which is fine, as long as we all understand that, sooner or later, we’ll have to go in and kill those folks before they kill us.
