Israel’s Security Cabinet has been meeting for hours in Tel Aviv at the Defense Ministry office in the IDF’s Kiryah base headquarters to decide the next step as Gaza terrorists continue to rain down rocket and missile fire on southern and central Israeli civilians.

By 5 pm Wednesday, more than 150 projectiles had been fired at citizens of the Jewish State since Hamas violated the 11th temporary cease-fire eight hours before it was due to expire at midnight Tuesday.

IAF fighter pilots took to the skies within minutes after the initial barrage of rockets exploded around the outskirts of Be’er Sheva and Netivot on Tuesday afternoon, and the IDF has carried out non-stop air strikes ever since.

Late last night IAF pilots dropped a bunker-buster on a home where it was believed that Hamas leader Mohammed Deif was hiding. His 28 year old wife and 7 month old infant were both killed and two other children were reportedly wounded, according to local sources, who said Deif himself managed somehow to survive.

Among the points being discussed at the cabinet meeting, it is believed, is the question of whether to expand Operation Protectie Edge, again, and if so, how.
