Israel accidentally fired upon the Egyptians and caused injuries. I know an Egyptian killed Israeli soldiers a few months ago, but somehow I think this will be used against Israel.
As IDF expresses regret over incident, Egyptian military does not give further details on wounded; matter not expected to disrupt entry of aid into enclavewww.timesofisrael.com
Someone up thread mentioned the hostages should be the first consideration. I agree. Last week, one of the American news network reported the IDF had said the first and last consideration would be destroying with Hamas.
I tend to agree that the hostages need to be brought home first, and the humanitarian crisis in Gaza food/water, etc. needs to be taken care of before Israeli forces start the full attack on Hamas.
My concern is that Hamas may ask for an exorbitant price for releasing the hostages. They seem to hold all the cards. Both sides know that they want to destroy each other. Is it even possible to have negotiations in good faith?
Earlier I was wondering - what if they call a 2-3 weeks cease fire to take care of the two things - hostages and Gaza? Not sure if something like this is even possible. I know nothing about wars.
