Israel begins ground offensive in Gaza

JERUSALEM: The Israeli military has launched a large-scale ground operation in the Gaza strip after the country’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed it to do so.

“The prime minister and defence minister have instructed the IDF (Israel Defence Force) to begin a ground operation tonight in order to hit the terror tunnels from Gaza into Israel,” an official statement from his office said.

In a statement the Israeli military said that the operation will include infantry, armoured corps, engineer corps, artillery and intelligence combined with aerial and naval support.  

At least 243 persons have been killed and 1,800 others injured by Israel since it began its latest onslaught against Palestinians in the Gaza strip on July 8.
