Israel Finally Gets Targets as Fight Intensifies

Israeli warplanes have bombed Hamas tunnels and underground bunkers in the northern Gaza Strip, military officials said early Saturday, as part of an expanded ground and air assault to crush the enclave’s ruling Hamas militants after its bloody incursion in southern Israel three weeks ago.

Israel Defense Forces said fighter jets struck dozens of underground targets and knocked out key communications infrastructure, causing a near-blackout of information and severing Gaza’s estimated 2.3 million residents from contact with the outside world.

“We are advancing in the stages of war. Last night, IDF forces entered the Gaza Strip and expanded ground activity,” Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said at an early Saturday news briefing.
