The death toll continues to rise as Operation Protective Edge enters its third week.  The start of this week saw heavy fighting in the Sajaiya neighborhood in Gaza.  On Wednesday, a rocket landed nearby Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport, leading the FAA to suspend American flights in and out of Israel for 48 hours.  Secretary Kerry remained in the region to continue efforts to forge a humanitarian and, ultimately a long-term, ceasefire. As the operation continues, many questions remain as to how the fighting will end, including whether Israel will declare a unilateral ceasefire, or be forced to disarm Hamas through the reoccupation of Gaza.

IPF reiterates its strong support for Israel as it defends itself from terror attacks, and hopes that a cease-fire can be reached that stops the violence of the past few weeks and brings long-term quiet to the people of Israel and Gaza.   It is clear that the status quo in Gaza, which has enabled Hamas to invest in innovative ways to threaten and kill Israelis while neglecting the needs of Gaza’s residents, cannot be perpetuated.
