Fox News | Breaking: Israel launches ground operation in Gaza Strip





The Israeli military launched a ground operation in the Gaza Strip Thursday, the Israel Defense Forces said.

The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced he had instructed the IDF to start a ground operation in Gaza to destroy the underground tunnels that reach into Israel.

The army said in a statement late Thursday that after 10 days of Hamas attacks, it had "initiated a ground operation within the Gaza Strip." The army said the objective was to strike a "significant blow to Hamas’ terror infrastructure."

Hamas spokesman Fouzi Barhom, Hamas told reporters in Gaza,"The decision of the Israeli army to start a ground invasion in Gaza is dangerous and they will pay back heavily for it. Hamas is ready for the conformation."
