IDF to invade Gaza in March?

A report on Israel's Channel 2 television tonight claims that Israel is mapping the population of Sderot for evacuation in preparation for an 'incursion' into Gaza in March. If this is going to happen, someone had better tell the local councils (the equivalent of county government in the US):
Several local councils in the area are drafting their own evacuation plan. A representative of these councils said they have not heard about any Defense Ministry evacuation plans. According to a statement from the Sderot municipality, the city has begun population mapping but does not yet have a full plan in place. The mapping, which was initiated by the ministries of defense and welfare in cooperation with the local authority, involves documenting Sderot's residents and determining potential relocation sites.

The security officer who reported on the army's plans said yesterday that the mapping and evacuation plans were spurred after IDF officials informed area security officers about the invasion plans. "The assumption is that after the incursion, the area will be exposed to heavy rocket fire," he said.
Now that's strange - I would have thought that if the IDF invades Gaza it would beat the ^%$# out of the 'Palestinians' and there wouldn't be any more Kassams or terrorists left. Silly me. What do I know?

Did they announce the exact date and time in Arabic, and hand out flyers? This is akin to a burglar calling you to let you know what time he is going to rob your home, 2 months beforehand.

It almost sounds like this is a plan to evict the Jews of Sderot. Period.

With any luck, we'll get a Knesset no confidence vote, and new election, and a new gov't, and then start seeing some real IDF action against the terrorist scum in Gaza.

Or maybe I'm just dreaming.

These kinds of reports smell like more disinformation. Would you broadcast in advance an attack you wanted to succeed? This sounds more like an invitation to other nations to step in and stop Israeli action in Gaza, so Israeli citizens could not fault their government later when it did nothing.

As for evacuating Sderot, exactly what areas would this government never evacuate? How can we know if they don't know?
