The Israeli army dropped leaflets in northern Gaza urging residents to avoid moving in the area because of impending military activity
What’s to say apart from that Israel has thrown its brains out of the window? Hamas was being undermined by in-fighting and turf wars with Fatah.

This is a license to start a full scale war all over again, which is exactly what Hamas and Israel want. How stupider can Israeli leadership get?
