8 killed, dozens injured in Sunday morning attack on Gaza

Israeli strikes continue in Gaza

The Israeli Defense Force said Sunday it would expand its incursion into Gaza. The IDF is considering taking the fight into the heart of Gaza's cities, possibly engaging in street battles.

Video released by the IDF showed an aerial strike on a Gaza tunnel, 16 of which the organization said it had identified in the border region. They are used by Gaza militants to store rockets, smuggle weapons and tunnel under the border into Israel.

On Saturday morning Israeli troops foiled one infiltration attempt. 2 soldiers and 1 militant were killed.

For the otherwise idyllic Kibbutz Beeri, the risk of incidents like this has increased. Amit Solvy was born there and said the militants infiltrated just 2 kilometers from his house.

"This is the home of Jewish people," Solvy said. "Where can we go?"

Just outside of Kibbutz Berri there was a lot of military activity Sunday. Tanks were being moved very close to the border. On the border highways, additional tanks rumbled into position, poised for the order to go even further into Gaza.
