Weak: IDF to scale back operations against Hamas due to 'international pressure'

A report on IDF radio says that operations against Hamas will be scaled back due to 'international pressure' and the upcoming Ramadamadan month, with operations limited to 'search and rescue.'
The decision was allegedly made on the basis of concerns over the upcoming Islamic holiday of Ramadan, which could cause Palestinian Arab violence to get out of control. 
Ministers also allegedly noted the waves of international criticism against Israel after the operation, with critics claiming that the raids are interrupting the pace of daily life in the Palestinian Authority (PA). 
It should be noted while the report is on the front page of the IDF Radio website, no other Israeli media outlet appears to have reported on the decision.
Arutz Sheva spoke to an IDF Spokesperson's Office representative over the issue, who could not confirm the report, but stressed that there are several security bodies at work in Operation Brothers' Keeper, and to her knowledge the operation is still at full force. 
The report also surfaces just hours after the United Nations Human Rights Council skewered Israel at a meeting to discuss the operation, in a hearing comprised almost entirely of anti-Israel testimonies.
Wild accusations made included claims that Israel is occupying both Syria and Lebanon, that Israel imprisons Palestinian children and the elderly, and a pro-Palestinian NGO's claim that Israel has "kidnapped Palestinian mothers" in comments just after the emotional speech of the mother of kidnapped teen Naftali Frenkel. 
Hours earlier, a senior IDF official stated to Arutz Sheva that the operation had progressed - and that not only was Ramadan not an issue, but that daily life in the PA was being preserved as much as possible despite the raids.
How do you search and rescue if you limit your ways of getting leads?

The only chance of deterring this from happening again is if the 'Palestinians' see that the crazy Israelis will react to it like bulls in a china shop. If we're not doing that, this sort of thing will God forbid happen again and again.

What could go wrong?

Absolutely. We should adopt the Arab's method; every time they protest, we double-down and do not relent. After a few cycles, the whiners will wish they had just shut up.

Carl, IMHO they are making a very dangerous mistake. And scaling back because of Ramadamn? Unbelievable.

Dearest Carl- I am beginning to lose hope. I only pray Israel can weather the hysterical bullshit that is so prevalent these days. Pres. Hussein Obama has turned our collective backs on Israel, American Jews have turned their backs on Israel, and now American Christian(presbyterian) entities have turned their backs on Israel. I think the world is at a place from which there is no turning back. I wish to God we had elected your Netanyahu as our President! It seems eligibility in America's elections are not as strict as they used to be! I'm wishing only the best for you, your family, and Israel. I would offer prayers as well, but I was raised presbyterian, and no longer practice any religion as most tend to sway in the wind depending on politics. Stay strong, my friend, and thank you for your blog.
