PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Israeli ground troops have attacked Gaza as its air force bombarded targets and officials ordered everyone living within miles of the border to go to bunkers amid fears of fierce retaliation from Hamas.The military said just after midnight air and ground forces were attacking the Hamas-run enclave. Rocket barrages from Gaza swiftly followed.Its statement gave no further details but military affairs correspondents who are briefed by the armed forces said it was not a ground invasion, and that troops were firing artillery from Israel's side of the border.Residents in northern Gaza, near the Israeli frontier, said they had seen no sign of Israeli ground forces inside the enclave but reported heavy artillery fire and dozens of air strikes.The Israel Defense Force tweeted from its official account on Thursday night: 'IDF air and ground troops are currently attacking in the Gaza Strip.'Military spokesman Lt Col Jonathan Conricus confirmed: 'There are ground troops attacking in Gaza, together with air forces as well.'Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted moments later: 'I said that we would charge a very heavy price from Hamas.'We do it and we will continue to do it with great intensity. The last word was not said and this operation will continue as long as necessary.'Hamas military spokesman Abu Obeida said the group was not afraid of a ground invasion, saying the move would be a chance 'to increase our catch' of dead or captive soldiers.It is not yet clear if any offensive will be to destroy rocket sites or Hamas leaders or part of an extended campaign to invade Gaza.Earlier Israel called up 9,000 reservists to bolster its forces as it deployed troops to the border in preparation for the ground assault.Relentless air strikes continued to decimate Hamas strongholds in the Strip on Thursday as their brigades held funerals for slain commanders, including the terror boss of Gaza City and their intelligence chief.Meanwhile three rockets were fired from southern Lebanon towards northern Israel but reportedly fell into the Mediterranean without injuring anyone.Local media said they were fired by one of the Palestinian factions in Lebanon and that it was not the start of Hezbollah getting involved in the conflict.Prime Minister Netanyahu is facing the prospect of a war on two fronts as internal rioting by Jewish and Arab mobs descended into 'lynchings' in the worst civil unrest for decades.Hamas requested a ceasefire on a 'mutual basis' late on Wednesday after firing more than 1,600 rockets into densely populated Israeli neighbourhoods, killing seven civilians including a five-year-old boy.Netanyahu rejected the peace offering despite growing international alarm at the rising civilian death toll after over 600 air strikes on Hamas targets - 103 Palestinians have been killed, including 27 children and 11 women.

'Whatever we don't do now, we will have to do in six months or a year from now.'He told Israeli news site Ynet: 'When we have hit all our targets and the other side has still not surrendered, we will launch a ground operation even though we do not seek it.'Plans for the ground invasion were earlier being drafted for approval by Israeli Defence Force Chief of Staff Lt-Gen Aviv Kohavi later on Thursday, according to the Jerusalem Post. If they get the General's sign off, the plans will be passed on to Netanyahu and his cabinet.'This will not end in the next few days,' the cabinet minister added. 'Israel will not stop and has no interest in stopping.'It is all moving in the right direction. We will act until they admit that opening fire was a mistake, just as Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah did after the Second Lebanon War in 2006.'As Joe Biden and Boris Johnson made appeals for calm yesterday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a forceful partisan condemnation - saying that Israel needed to be taught a 'lesson'.He told Russia's Vladimir Putin during a phone call of the need for 'the international community to give Israel a strong and deterrent lesson' as he called on the UN to intervene with a 'determined and clear message.' The appeals fell on deaf ears this morning as Israel and Hamas exchanged cross-border blows throughout the early hours of Thursday - sending Israelis fleeing into air raid shelters, while Palestinians evacuated their apartments.    Among the high-ranking commanders 'neutralised' in strikes on Wednesday were Brigadier General Bassem Issa, chief of the Gaza City Brigades, and Jamal Zabda, head of the group's rocket unit and responsible for the improved accuracy of their projectiles.  The IDF says it has launched strikes on 650 targets, including militants, infrastructure, missile-launch sites, central banks and administrative buildings key to maintaining power in the Strip. Brigadier General Hidai Zilberman told reporters early Thursday: 'Tonight we started destroying government targets in the Gaza Strip, such as central banks and internal security buildings. Hamas is beginning to discover cracks and there is pressure in the organization, even among the Gaza public who is losing its patience and sees these ruins on the eve of the holiday (Eid).'   Three tower blocks have been levelled in assaults by the Israel Air Force and the Islamists' network of underground tunnels has been decimated by bunker buster bombs.As well as high-ranking commanders, the IDF say they have killed another 60 Hamas militants.

At this stage, a Council statement would be counterproductive,' said one source familiar with discussions, also speaking anonymously.A new meeting - this time public - could be held within days, however.  more videos 1 2 3 Watch video James Milner praises Jordan Banks over fundraising in old video Watch video Husband of woman murdered in Greece believes culprits will be caught Watch video Israeli police patrols Jewish-Arab town as conflict intensifies Watch video Andy Burnham: Local lockdown will 'go down like a lead balloon' Watch video Golden retriever fatally shot in family's backyard Watch video Rockets cross over Gaza City's evening skyline Watch video Wendy Magrinat speaks out about being shot in Times Square Watch video Funny moment girl in Michigan sprints after ice cream truck Watch video Wild video shows security guard kicking couple out of restaurant Watch video Netanyahu calls for stop of violence between Arab and Jewish citizens Watch video President Joe Biden condemns rocket attacks in Gaza Watch video Israel PM threatens to hit Gaza militant groups as tensions escalate DM.later('bundle', function(){ DM.molFeCarousel.init('#p-156', 'channelCarousel', { "activeClass" : "wocc", "pageCount" : "3.0", "pageSize" : 1, "onPos": 0, "updateStyleOnHover": true }); }); Israelis take cover as rockets are fired from Gaza and bomb sires sound today amid attacks by Hamas more videos 1 2 3 Watch video Rockets launched by Gaza militants seen in Tel Aviv sky Watch video James Milner praises Jordan Banks over fundraising in old video Watch video Husband of woman murdered in Greece believes culprits will be caught Watch video Israeli police patrols Jewish-Arab town as conflict intensifies Watch video Fire lights up the Gaza sky as missiles continue to fall Watch video Rockets cross over Gaza City's evening skyline Watch video Funny moment girl in Michigan sprints after ice cream truck Watch video Wild video shows security guard kicking couple out of restaurant Watch video Eyewitness captures moment of Israel's air strike in Gaza Watch video Netanyahu calls for stop of violence between Arab and Jewish citizens Watch video President Joe Biden condemns rocket attacks in Gaza Watch video Israel PM threatens to hit Gaza militant groups as tensions escalate DM.later('bundle', function(){ DM.molFeCarousel.init('#p-163', 'channelCarousel', { "activeClass" : "wocc", "pageCount" : "3.0", "pageSize" : 1, "onPos": 0, "updateStyleOnHover": true }); });
