02:44: According to a Channel 10 poll, 87 percent of the Israeli public would like Operation Protective Edge to continue, and 69 percent want Hamas to be toppled entirely. 7 percent want an immediate ceasefire. Six percent answer that they don’t know.
09:31: The Security Cabinet met into the late hours of the night. The IDF awaits instructions as to how to proceed in Gaza. It remains unclear if the ground operation will expand to eliminate Hamas’ rocket-firing abilities or if it will wrap up with the destruction of the tunnels.
The government has the vast majority of the public's support and approval for finishing the job. The army awaits it orders. Today marks a turning point in this process, just as we all knew it would. What will be in the coming pivotal hours and how might it change all of our futures?
