Shelling Northern Gaza

In chapter 3,486,329 of the Palestinain/Israel battle, we see that nothing has changed.

You may recall a few episodes ago, Israel pulled out of the Gaza Strip in a huge gamble on goodwill that they probably knew they would lose, but hoped they wouldn't.

Palestinians have responded by destroying a thriving network of valuable greenhouses that Israel left to them, and firing rockets into Israel.

Israel now wants a buffer zone in Northern Gaza. Palestinians complain that a buffer zone is tantamount to "re-occupation". Well, perhaps they should have thought about that before they fired rockets at Israeli citizens from that area.

When will it end?

It will end after the people of Palestine start holding their brethren even partially responsible for perpetuating their plight and stand between them and their targets.
