UK: Gaza Ground invasion will be damaging for Israel

A ground invasion of the Gaza Strip would lose Israel much international sympathy and support, British Foreign Secretary William Hague warned Sunday.

Hague told Sky News television it was much more difficult to limit civilian casualties in a ground assault and it would threaten to prolong the conflict.

“A ground invasion of Gaza would lose Israel a lot of the international support and sympathy that they have in this situation,” Hague said.

    what Iran, syria and hezbollah want here is for Israel really to have ground assault on Gaza. many civilians will die and hamas will plead for international help and cry wolf. Syria might even shoot few rockets at Golan heights in order to show solidarity with Hamas. then if FSA fights Syrian regular army, then they will look bad of course..All that killings suits Iran just fine..while palestinians blood will be spilled all to please Hamas Masters.. well Hezbollah will try to please Iran next I am sure..
