Gantz: IDF is ready for any government decision on Gaza

IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz toured military forces stationed in the south, and said the army was "ready for any decision by the government." The comments came as prospects for a potential ground offensive grew, following Hamas's refusal to cease its rocket fire on Israel.
The Israel Air Force struck 1,300 targets in Gaza since the beginning of the operation last week, including 80 targets today.
The Iron Dome anti-rocket shield intercepted 306 enemy projectiles heading for city centers, including four interceptions on Monday over Ashdod.
