Israel starts Gaza ground offensive

The Israeli military has begun a ground offensive against Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip.

The Israel Defense Forces said they were extending their Operation Protective Edge.

They said it was in response to continued militant rocket fire and to strike a "significant blow to Hamas", which controls Gaza.
