Israel has launched the start of a new war on Gaza “that will continue and grow,” pounding the blockaded area with an aerial assault including multiple airstrikes on Wednesday.

Israel has named their new war: “Operation Pillar of Cloud” –  a Biblical reference to the Divine cloud that protected the Jewish people.

The IDF, (Israel Defense Forces), tweetedWednesday: “All options are on the table. If necessary, the IDF is ready to initiate a ground operation in Gaza.” And Israel’s Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai also hinted at a ground operation being a possibility, telling Channel 2 TV, “There are preparations, and if we are required to, the option of a entry by ground is available.” In more evidence of a ground war in sight,Haaretz reports that the IDF has issued draft orders for Israeli Homefront Command reserve soldiers.

Confirming that air assaults are only part of longer-term escalation, Mordechai added on Wednesday evening, “We are in the midst of an attack that will continue and grow. There is no hourglass.”

Al Jazeera reports that Palestinians said nine people were killed, including a seven-year-old girl so far.

One of the strikes killed Ahmad Al Jabari, the head of the armed wing of Hamas, Ezzedine Al-Qassam.  The assassination “opened the gates of hell,” Agence France-Presse reports the group as saying.
