Israel Intensifies Attacks On Gaza As US Urges Protection Of Civilians

Israel’s military says it is intensifying its military strikes targeting Hamas militants in Gaza, with more air attacks and ground operations.

Military officials Sunday said ground forces killed a number of Hamas militants as they were exiting a tunnel near the Erez crossing, which used to be the sole pedestrian passageway out of Gaza into Israel before it was destroyed in the recent fighting. It was unclear how many militants were killed by Israeli forces.

Hamas has a sprawling network of tunnels underneath Gaza where it is believed to be stockpiling weapons, food, and other supplies.

The Israel Defense Forces said early Sunday that its fighter jets struck 450 Hamas targets in Gaza over the past 24 hours, including strikes near Shifa Hospital, one of Gaza’s largest, which is packed with patients and a destination for those seeking shelter.
