Tensions and attacks escalated in Israel early this morning as Israeli forces sought to destroy Hamas’ underground tunnel network. Reports suggest that a combination of both airstrikes and ground forces are leading the charge.
According to a spokesman for the Israeli military, 160 planes and three brigades of troops, including tanks, were involved in the effort. This marks the first time in the five-day conflict that ground troops have been deployed.
Lt. Jonathan Conricus said that “Unlike our very elaborate efforts to clear civilian areas before we strike high-rises or large buildings inside Gaza, that wasn’t feasible this time,” and stressed that the military was using “precision-guided munitions.”
The BBC reports that Jewish and Arab mobs have been brawling in the streets of Israel, causing the nation’s leadership to warn of “civil war.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a statement: “I said that we would charge a very heavy price from Hamas. We do this and we will continue to do so with great intensity. The last word was not said and this operation will continue as long as necessary.”
