Maj.-Gen. Yisrael Ziv warned on Saturday night of the IDF’s current plans to increase activity in the Gaza Strip. "It was decided to launch a prolonged and constant attack on Hamas," said Ziv, the army's head of operations, hinting that Israel was preparing to resume targeted attacks against top Hamas leaders. Asked whether the leaders were in danger, he said: "Let them decide for themselves." Ziv, the Israeli commander, and other officials said they hoped the military campaign would encourage Palestinians to put pressure on Hamas to halt its activities. "We are calling on the Palestinian population to stand up for their rights and ... see where the Hamas is taking them," Ziv said.
