Israel Enters Gaza

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israeli ground forces which entered the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Saturday will take control of some of the areas used by Palestinian factions to fire rockets at Israel, the military said.

"The objective is to destroy the Hamas terror infrastructure in the area of operations," said Major Avital Leibovitch, a military spokeswoman, confirming that incursions were under way. "We are going to take some of the launch areas used by Hamas."
