    Remember what they started the Hezb operation with? Elimination of any potential threat in distance and severity, elimination of any communication centers, rocket storage depos etc. Unfortunately the South will suffer for a little while because the Grads, Kassams and smaller projectiles are all located and fired from the tightly civilian areas. We are talking literally inside the civilian houses, mosques, schools. This is what Hamas is waiting for. They know the only thing that will stop the Israeli offensive is one or two multiple casualties hit on these objects. Hopefully the Grads will be taken care of by Iron Dome as much as possible, and Israeli citizens of the South have to be very vigilant for a short period of time. My advice to Israel is not to put boots on the ground going after Kasams. They will not be given much time for this operation, especially if one substential accident with the civilian entity will occur. I would not be surprised if Hamas created such "accident" in the hurry themselves and blames Israel for it. In the short amount of time Israeli hands will be semi-untited, she has to relentllessly take out or level anything Hamas valuable in the strip, militarily and strategically. Including as many terrorists themselves and especially the commanders and as many Hamas leaders as possible.
