Israel public back Gaza assault despite death toll: analysts

Friends and relatives of 21-year-old Israeli Sgt. Barkey Ishai Shor mourn at his funeral at the Mount Herzel military cemetery in Jerusalem on July 29, 2014The army’s mounting death toll in Gaza has taken the Israeli public by surprise but without dampening its strong support for the military campaign against Hamas, analysts say. Funerals were held across the Jewish state on Tuesday for 10 soldiers killed the day before, five of them in a firefight with Palestinian militants who infiltrated Israel by a tunnel from Gaza. Four others were killed after a mortar shell exploded not far inside Israel and another in fighting in the Gaza Strip. An overwhelming “86.5 percent believes that Israel cannot agree to a ceasefire as long as Hamas continues to fire rockets on Israel, as long as all the tunnels have not been discovered and as long as Hamas refuses to surrender,” it said.
