Gaza mortar shells target Israeli forces searching for Hamas tunnels; Israel responds with airstrike, tank fire and declares border area a closed military zone; Hamas evacuates two schools as a precautionary measure.21:44 04.05.16 | 4 comments
The US has been taken entirely out of any picture as mediator or mitigation agent of anything. Notice there has not been a peep out of DC about temperance or caution. Bibi and Ehud can do whatever they want with Gaza. Not only no objections. But the US won't pick up any pieces afterward. That destroyed power plant will stay destroyed forever. The only downside for Israel is that Israel has to decide everything and be responsible for its own choices.
