IDF soldiers enter the Gaza Strip, 18 July 2014.

Israel has the military ability to re-occupy the Gaza Strip, says the IDF, but the move would come at a cost of hundreds of Israeli lives and could endanger Israel’s peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan. The move could also result in numerous IDF soldiers being taken hostage.

According to a report on Channel 2 following the Tisha B’av fast Tuesday diplomatic correspondent Udi Segal,the report, IDF officers told government ministers that thousands of Palestinian civilians would be killed in the effort.

Segal reported that there are approximately 20,000 gunmen in the Strip,  who posses large stockpiles of rockets, explosives and weaponry. The report said that taking control of that arsenal would take no less than five years and could make Israel’s occupation of the South Lebanon security zone from 1983-2000 look like child’s play.

In addition, large-scale violence from Judea and Samaria Arabs and Arab citizens of Israel would be expected.

  1. But this war has changed a lot of perspectives even among Gazans blaming Hamas of deaths. For me this is victory. Hamas will have a second thought next time to fly their rockets to Israel. We may not know there are some positive results among the Palestinians as a result of this war.

  2. If Egypt helps to stabilize Gaza..than its worth it. When terrorism ends in Gaza, many countries will have great prosperity and sleep in peace but not not I Ran! UN must have deep conviction to educate the Gaza Children as of now they are trained to kill The Jews and Infidels! HOW COULD UN SPONSOR SUCH SCHOOLS?

  3. But if the rockets, over 3500 had killed Israeli children, which is what Hamas wanted, that would have been O.K. With you, right moron? After all, who started it ? Now Gaza is wrecked and what did those s attain? Tough luck raghead.

  4. Anybody ever hear of the Palestine Riots of 1929 and 1937? The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and his collaboration with the Nazi Regime? Learn history, people. The Hamas and other Anti-Israel use recycled Nazi propaganda against Jews.

  5. Is the question really, do it in the short run and have peace or just subdue it and go through cyclical wars for the foreseeable furture. I do not see Hamas or any of the Arab nations allowing peace in Gaza, especially with ISIS mobilizing, The infiltration of terrorist will continue because that is the nature of the muslim/anti-Jews.

  6. What does ‘reconquering Gaza’ mean? It should mean depopulate and exiling Palestinians to Jordon, Turkey, Syria, or somewhere (their problem). Then the same for the West Bank, and any Israeli Arab who has allegiance problems. And remember that Palestinians are not just Muslims, but Christians as well some who are actively supporting Hamas as they did support Arafat and others in the beginning. Israel should retake ALL Israel as a JEWISH nation.
