IDF ‘approves’ plan for possible ground invasion into Gaza as Netanyahu reportedly rejects Hamas truce offer

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have drawn up plans to invade Gaza from the ground in response to the rocket barrage by Hamas. Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly dismissed an offer to end hostilities “on a mutual basis.”

Additional troops have been moved to the Gazan border, including soldiers from the Paratroopers Brigade, the Golani Infantry Brigade, and the 7th Armored Brigade, IDF spokesperson Brigadier General Hidai Zilberman told reporters on Thursday.

Zilberman said the plan for a possible invasion into Gaza would be presented to IDF Chief of Staff General Aviv Kochavi later on Thursday. “We are ready to maneuver and, in principle, the IDF had approved several different plans for a ground offensive,” the spokesperson said, noting that the final decision to cross the border had not yet been made by the government.

The IDF said the Palestinian militant group Hamas had launched more than 1,500 rockets into the cities of southern and central Israel since May 10, forcing many to hide in bomb shelters and killing six civilians, including a six-year-old boy, and an IDF soldier.

In response, Israel bombed over 650 targets in Gaza, destroying several high-rise buildings in the densely populated Palestinian enclave. Israel’s armed forces reportedly killed dozens of Hamas operatives, including several of the group’s top commanders. Gazan health officials, meanwhile, said that 69 Palestinians, including 17 children, were killed in the airstrikes as of Thursday.
