Israel Reported Readying Attack on Gaza

Today’s London Times, apparently relying on IDF sources, says that incoming defense minister Ehud Barak is planning an attack on Gaza some time in the next few weeks:

Barak, who is expected to become defence minister tomorrow, has already demanded detailed plans to deploy two armoured divisions and an infantry division, accompanied by assault drones and F-16 jets, against Hamas.
The Israeli forces would expect to be confronted by about 12,000 Hamas fighters with arms confiscated from the Fatah faction that they defeated in last week
