Israeli Ground Forces Push Into Gaza 03 Jan 2009 Israeli troops backed by helicopters advanced into Gaza on Saturday, a Palestinian witness and the Israeli army said, in the first ground action of an eight-day offensive against Hamas in the Palestinian enclave. The small column of military vehicles crossed the boundary fence into the northern Gaza Strip under darkness, said the witness, a resident of Beit Lahiya.
Thousands protest in Europe at Gaza offensive 03 Jan 2009 Thousands of chanting, banner-waving demonstrators marched in cities across Europe on Saturday to demand a halt to Israeli bombing in the Gaza Strip. Protests were held or scheduled in Britain, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain as the Israeli offensive entered its second week. Kuwaitis also took to the streets, a day after bigger Middle East rallies.
Israel launches ground assault into Gaza
A column of tanks, some firing their weapons, rolled into the northern part of the coastal enclave as Israeli combat helicopters flew overhead, according to Palestinian residents. Israeli television channels broadcast images of troops marching into the territory.
As Israeli warplanes pounded Hamas positions today, a missile struck a mosque in the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahiya during late-afternoon prayers, killing 13 people inside, Palestinian medical workers reported. Two of the dead were children, they said.
The ground offensive began after dark, following a round of Israeli artillery fire that created a blanket of dust and smoke that obscured the troops' advance.
Thousands of Israeli troops had been massing along the border for days, and Israeli officials said preparations for the ground offensive were completed Friday.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's office said today that the government had ordered the call-up of tens of thousands of military reservists.
