Add to that belief the notion that something must be done to lay a foundation at least hinting toward stability in the Palestinian world before the long-awaited Trump peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians is unveiled if it is to have any chance at acceptance, and the strategy becomes a forgone conclusion.

Palestinians have fired three rockets towards Israel after warplanes bombed parts of the besieged Gaza Strip early Monday in an escalation which prompted warnings of a new war.

On Sunday, an Israeli military official warned that if the regime were to respond more harshly to the kites being sent from the Gaza Strip, it would lead to war, Hadashot TV said.

Israel's deadly tactics in confronting the weekly Friday protests have drawn worldwide condemnation.

Israeli ministers are reportedly looking at ways to ease the crisis in the Strip as a way to defuse the weekly border protests, which are seen partly as a result of the dire situation there.
