The Israeli army sent troops into the Palestinian territory of the Gaza Strip during the night from Thursday to Friday, in the context of the conflict with the Islamist organizations Hamas and Islamic Jihad, according to sources quoted by the Israeli press.
For now, it is not an invasion, but the Israeli military has entered the Gaza Strip as part of anti-terrorist operations in an effort to stop rocket attacks on Israeli territory, sources quoted by Haaretz and the Times of Israel said. It is the first time since clashes broke out between Israel and Palestinian Islamist groups that Israeli soldiers have entered the Gaza Strip.
According to The Jerusalem Post, the Israeli army is currently attacking Gaza Strips from the air and from the ground. The Israeli army did not provide details about the ground operation. It is not known how many soldiers intervened in the Gaza Strip or whether their mission has already ended or continues.
About 750 Islamist positions in the Gaza Strip have so far been attacked. Residents of Israeli communities near the Gaza Strip were urged to remain in their homes.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday night that Islamist Hamas, which has control of the Gaza Strip, “will pay a heavy price.”
“We will continue to do what we are doing with great intensity. We are not towards the end, the operation will continue as long as necessary,” Benjamin Netanyahu said.
