Israel considers ground invasion of Gaza

| No Comments

Israeli and Palestinian forces exchanged airstrikes for a third straight day on Friday, prompting Israel to threaten a ground invasion of Gaza if rocket attacks on Israel do not stop, the LA Times reported.
The Israeli government has drafted 16,000 troops and authorized the mobilization of 75,000 reservists.
Rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel's two largest cities, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv on Friday, and while neither rocket hit its mark, Israel considers this to be a major escalation in the conflict, MSNBC reported.
The recent surge of violence began on Wednesday when Israel killed Ahmed Jabari, Hamas' military mastermind.
