JERUSALEM (Worthy News)– Israel sent ground forces into the Gaza Strip on Thursday evening to find and destroy terror tunnels and destroy Hamas' infrastructure, Israeli officials said.

IDF forces began a ground incursion into the Gaza Strip on Thursday night, as Israel made good on the next stage of the operation, which it warned would happen if the rocket fire from the Hamas-controlled area did not stop.

The incursion signals a new stage in the IDF's Operation Protective Edge, which began 10 days ago in the face of the ongoing rocket barrages on southern communities. Since the start of the operation, militants in the Strip have expanded their targets to include areas of central Israel, with Tel Aviv and Jerusalem coming under fire, along with Holon, Bat Yam, Rishon Lezion and Yavne.

The ground operation began with heavy artillery shelling of Beit Hanoun and Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip. According to the Palestinians, three people have been killed in the artillery attack, including one child. — Source

    This is what comes of "land for peace" negotiations. It will never work. The Arab world wants Israel off the map but God will still deal with Israel and keep His promises to her. She will never be destroyed. As the Bible says "I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed." Watch out Hamas and all who are in on this. Your day is coming.
