The IDF believes that the calm in the Gaza Strip has the potential to last for years, Kan 11 News reported on Friday. The assessment is based on a combination of several factors. First and foremost, the report said, is Operation Guardian of the Walls, which created a deterrent against Hamas, as well as the concessions that Israel has been making to the Gaza Strip, so Hamas has something to lose if it chooses to violate the ceasefire.

Another reason for the expected calm is the deterrence the latest operation, Breaking Dawn, caused vis-à-vis the Islamic Jihad. The IDF estimates that Islamic Jihad will no longer enter into conflicts against Israel without having prior backing from Hamas, according to Kan 11 News.
