About ten minutes after I started to watch the football match between the Czech and Danish national teams, my brother called, and we talked for more than an hour. Just before the half time break the broadcast was stopped because of the attack against the IDF post in the Gaza strip. Here they are talking only about many wounded, on foreign websites it was already said that at least five soldiers were killed. Hopefully the foreign media are wrong, but most probably the only reason why in Israel we have not heard yet about soldiers being killed is the fact that the families of the victims have not been notified yet. Of course, the first political reaction was already given, this time by a Yesha spokesperson, who said that a retreat under fire will only enhance terror. Right now I do not see much of a retreat, especially when we consider the successful actions by the IDF this weekend.
