Israel Gears Up for Ground Invasion

After eight days of bombardments of Gaza and the death of nearly 500 Palestinians, many civilians, the Israeli military is poised to move tanks and ground troops into the Palestinian territory. While the Israeli government has claimed that the bombings are in retaliation for Hamas rocket attacks that have killed four Israelis, its indiscriminate campaign to root out the terrorist organization has failed in attempting to delicately guard innocent human life.

CNN reports that the Israeli air forces dropped leaflets in Northern Gaza, warning inhabitants to "leave the area immediately" and abandon their homes, family and daily lives. War in Gaza has wrought much hardship and suffering on both peoples, and it is evidently true that a military solution will never be the answer.
