Israel Starts Raids Inside of Gaza—What a Full Scale Ground Invasion Will Include and How It Could Play Out

A full-scale Israeli ground invasion of Gaza was imminent Friday after the Israel Defense Force confirmed for the first time its troops and tanks had started carrying out raids inside the Palestinian enclave.

Israel has amassed a significant arsenal at the edge of Gaza as its war with terror group Hamas escalates including 35 battalions containing 300,000 troops who will be led into battle by 100 D9R fortified Bulldozers, 300 tanks and scores of Armored Personnel Carriers [APCs].

The IDF said on Friday troops have already carried out “localized raids” in Gaza to hunt terrorists and to attempt to find some of the approximately 150 Israeli hostages captured by Hamas during last week’s ruthless attacks, which sparked the war and left over 1,300 Israelis dead.

Since then Israel has launched nightly bombing raids on Gaza with some 6,000 airstrikes on strategic targets, reducing many to rubble. The territory’s health ministry said 1,900 people have been killed in the air raids.

On Thursday the IDF dropped flyers in northern Gaza warning its estimated 1.1m residents to head south of the Wadi Gaza bridge within 24 hours, including evacuating 11 hospitals, three UN compounds, and two refugee camps, which most took as a sign a ground invasion would follow. Hamas told its citizens to ignore the warning and stay where they are.
