Mideast Israel Palestinians

Israeli troops are pushing deep into Gaza, and the ground operation could get even more intense.

FOX News Radio's Emily Wither reports from the Israeli-Gaza border:

As the wind whips up dust from the dirt track around us, I've watched at least six coach-loads full of Israeli soldiers, jumping out, grabbing their gear and trekking into the fields near a military base here on the northeastern Gaza border. 

And those coaches keep on coming as do tanks and other military hardware. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is ordering the military to prepare for a significant expansion of its ground operation. Their aim is to deliver a blow to the Hamas tunnel network which they couldn't attack from the air.
