"Operation Justified Vengeance" was a secret plan to invade the Palestinian territories and destroy the Palestinian Authority

Contrived behind closed doors in July of last year, it was slated by its IDF and Mossad architects to be "launched immediately following the next high-casualty suicide bombing, would last about a month and is expected to result in the death of hundreds of Israelis and thousands of Palestinians."
