They'd be forced to take a military operation, huh. Like Cast Lead or the numerous other invasions...or is it the Siege that was intended to free Gilad. Yes, it's illegal to prevent the RC from seeing him, but the RC doesn't have unfettered access. If the RC could take a boat in, so that Israel couldn't plant anything on the medics, perhaps that would be acceptable. However, Israel showed that they track with drones anyone they think might go see Gilad. Israel's crazy violence on anyone near a soldier mitigates this international right.
