NPR's Peter Kenyon takes an in-depth look at Israel's sustained campaign against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. During much of the two-and-a-half year conflict with the Palestinians, Israel has refrained from major ground incursions into Gaza, fearing heavy casualties. But with a sustained series of infantry thrusts into Gaza backed by tanks and helicopters in the last few weeks, the Israeli high command has clearly decided to go after Hamas despite fears the IDF could get bogged down, as it did in Lebanon.
