Israel invades Gaza with planes and ground troops


Israeli Army aka Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) says IDF air and ground troops are currently attacking the Gaza Strip. It means Israel has crossed the international borders between the two countries illegally and invaded the Palestine in Gaza strip.


More than 100 people have been killed in Gaza and seven have died in Israel.

Jewish and Israeli Arab mobs have also been fighting within Israel, prompting the president to warn of civil war.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, an Israeli military spokesman, said ground and air forces are striking targets in Gaza from the Israeli side of the border, including tanks and artillery. He initially said Israeli troops had entered the Gaza Strip but later retracted that statement.

“There are ground forces currently deployed along the border area and they are engaging and attacking the Gaza Strip from there,” said Col. Conricus.

Israeli troops are moving into Gaza from the north, bombing first and entering with tanks, according to people in Gaza. It wasn’t immediately clear if these people saw the Israeli tanks move beyond the buffer zone that separates Israel and Gaza.
