Former COS Amnon Lipkin-Shahak suggested in a live interview broadcast on Israel Radio this morning that right now the situation is not serious enough to justify occupying Gaza but that if rocket attacks extend to include Ashkelon then there might be no choice but to occupy Gaza.
Israel Radio broadcast a report within a few minutes of the interview that Hamas has announced that they intend to cause Israel to evacuate Ashkelon just as Sderot is now being evacuated in the wake of the rocket attacks
