Top IDF Gaza commander: Hamas risking 'Operation Cast Lead II'

If Hamas continues to assists terrorist groups with attacks against IDF soldiers, it will risk facing "Operation Cast Lead II," a top IDF commander in Gaza threatened on Monday. Lt.-Col. Avinoam Stolevitch's comments came after a group of around 10 Palestinian gunmen armed with "huge amounts of explosives" launched a failed Gaza border assault at the Karni Crossing earlier in the day. "We are slowing beginning to understand the magnitude of [the threat from the Gaza Strip]," Stolevitch told Army Radio, adding his evaluation that the terrorists had planned a "large explosion… to provide cover for a kidnapping."
