Bless you boys.
A buddy of mine in Israel told me today, that ”all the roads in Israel are filled with trucks carrying tanks towards Gaza, we have plenty of tanks”. Hopefully the uneven casualty statistics continue, I want Israel’s mortal enemies dead, as many as humanly possible.
Both sides have dismissed calls for a truce, and Israel continued to build up troops along the Gaza border ahead of a possible ground invasion, warning Palestinians in northern Gaza to evacuate their homes.

It is the first time that Israeli ground troops are known to have entered Gaza in the current offensive. But the operation was carried out by special forces and did not appear to be the beginning of a broad ground offensive.
Saturday was the bloodiest day since the conflict erupted on Tuesday, with 52 Palestinians killed.
