IDF establishes cordon sanitaire in Northern Gaza

IDF opted for the best tactics in a strategically hopeless situation. Israeli tanks and troops are attempting to divide the Strip just south of Gaza City. The assumption is that the week of strikes pushed the militants south, away from the Israel border. Once they can be prevented from infiltrating the north for some time, Israelis would be free to comb the territory. It is unclear—what do we expect to find there besides a few weapons caches, which Hamas could easily replace? Apparently, IDF aims to occupy Gaza’s north in a ceasefire and comb it for a prolonged period with a large number of troops, then probably deliver the territory to Fatah thugs to serve as a base for their operation against Hamas.
