By Breitbart. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) sent ground troops into Gaza early Friday morning local time, in an effort to uproot Palestinian terrorists who have fired nearly 2,000 rockets at Israeli civilians over the past several days.
The IDF tweeted after midnight:
IDF air and ground troops are currently attacking in the Gaza Strip.

אמרתי שאנחנו נגבה מחיר כבד מאוד מהחמאס. אנחנו עושים זאת ואנחנו נמשיך לעשות זאת בעוצמה רבה.

He added: “The last word was not been said, and this operation will continue as long as necessary.” That may have been a warning to the international community, including the United Nations, not to intervene until Hamas had been defeated. (Read more from “Israel Sends Ground Troops Into Gaza HERE)
Biden: Israel Didn’t Overreact In Its Gaza Response
By Breitbart. President Joe Biden said Thursday that he does not think Israel has overreacted in its response to massive rocket fire from Gaza.
“One of the things I’ve seen thus far is that there has not been a significant overreaction [by Israel],” he said during a press conference.
“The question is how they get to a point where there is a significant reduction in the attacks, particularly the rocket attacks that are indiscriminately fired into population centers, but I expect that I’ll be having some more discussions,” Biden added.
He also noted that his administration is in frequent contact with Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and others about finding an end to the violence. (Read more from “Biden: Israel Didn’t Overreact In Its Gaza Response” HERE)
