Is Israel about to invade Gaza?

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2007/11/is-israel-about-to-invade-gaza.html

It is not the first time that Al-Quds Al-Arabi gets a scoop or a canard. We don't know which this one is. If Israel has such plans, would they reveal operational details to the Palestinian Authority?
 
Israel has informed PA authorities in Ramallah of its intention to send the IDF into the Gaza Strip in order to regain control of the Philadelphi Corridor and put an end to Hamas smuggling of weapons and cash through tunnels from the Egyptian side of the border, the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported Friday morning.
 
According to the report, Israel has told a number of Arab states that after the November 26 Annapolis conference it intends to embark on an extensive operation in the Strip.
 
Palestinian sources received explicit information stating that during the projected first stage of the operation, Israel is determined to gain control of Rafah and areas along the Egyptian border ranging as far as Khan Yunis, the paper said. The second stage will reportedly include an incursion into the central and northern Gaza Strip.
 
Since when does Israel advertise its military moves in advance to Arab states? If Israel is going to invade Gaza, would they really do it in phases as it states here? That seems like a very bad plan in any case, Central and northern Gaza would remain intact, and a base for harassing the IDF in the south, as well as for launching the nice Qassam missiles. What would be the purpose of telling Mahmoud Abbas about it? Here is his reaction:
 
According to Al-Quds Al-Arabi's sources, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who rejected out of hand Israel's plan to recapture the Philadelphi Corridor, intends to send emissaries to regional countries in an effort to convey the sense of urgency regarding the danger of an Israeli incursion.
 
Abbas, the paper said, will state that an Israeli incursion would destroy the Gaza Strip and its infrastructure.
 
Given that reaction, what would be the point of telling Abbas? Of course, it is not literally possible to destroy the Gaza strip.
