IDF paratroopers foiled an ambush in Gaza on Thursday when they surprised terrorists who had prepared an explosive device to kill them.

Operation Protective Edge entered its 18th day Friday with a significant decline in the number of rocket and missile attacks on Israel and what is perceived as clear signs of a decline in the morale of Hamas.

No IDF casualties were reported overnight, but four soldiers, including two paratroopers were seriously injured. It is not known if the paratroopers were wounded in the same incident in which the combat units foiled the ambush, as explained n the video below.

A Golani battalion commander suffered serious injuries when a terror tunnel collapsed one him.

The IDF carried out more than 130 attacks on Hamas terror targets Thursday, bringing to more than 3,00 the number of actions taken against the Hamas terrorist infrastructure.

Government unity for continuing the counter-terrorist campaign is weakening in the face of new proposals from  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for a ceasefire. Opposition leader Yitzchak Herzog said Friday morning he is in favor of a ceasefire if Hamas accepts it, while most Likud, Jewish Hem and Yisrael Beitenu Knesset Members want the IDF to finish the job and disarm Hamas.

  21. “O God, do not remain quiet;
    Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
    For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
    And those who hate You have exalted themselves.
    They make shrewd plans against Your people,
    And conspire together against Your treasured ones.
    They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation,
    That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”
    For they have conspired together with one mind;
    Against You they make a covenant:
    The tents of Edom (Palestinians and Southern Jordanians) and the Ishmaelites (Saudis),
    Moab (Palestinians and Central Jordanians)and the Hagrites (Egyptian descendants of Hagar-not from Abraham);
    Gebal (Hezbollah and Northern Lebanese)and Ammon (Palestinians and Northern Jordanians) and Amalek (Arabs of Sinai area),
    Philistia (Hamas of Gaza strip) with the inhabitants of Tyre (Hezbollah and Southern Lebanese);
    Assyria (Syrians and Northern Iraqis) also has joined with them;
    They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.
    Deal with them as with Midian,
    As with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon,
    Who were destroyed at En-dor,
    Who became as dung for the ground.
    Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb
    And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
    Who said, “Let us possess for ourselves
    The pastures of God.”
    O my God, make them like the whirling dust,
    Like chaff before the wind.
    Like fire that burns the forest
    And like a flame that sets the mountains on fire,
    So pursue them with Your tempest
    And terrify them with Your storm.
    Fill their faces with dishonor,
    That they may seek Your name, O Lord. Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever,
    And let them be humiliated and perish, That they may know that You alone, whose name is the Lord,
    Are the Most High over all the earth.” -Psalm 83
