Text size Aa Aa

Israel has confirmed that ground forces have entered Gaza. One news agency earlier quoted a Palestinian witness as saying that a column of military vehicles backed by helicopters have entered the territory. After seven days of airstrikes, reports on the ground also said Israeli artillery cannons began shelling targets. There was no immediate comment from the Israeli military, but explosions have been reported in Gaza City.
