Israel intensified its airstrikes in Gaza last night, reports CNN, bombing about 60 targets across the Strip on the 13th day of the operation. One of the targets was a mosque that the Israeli military claims stored weapons and sheltered Hamas fighters. The airstrikes also targeted 10 Hamas tunnels used to funnel arms from Egypt as well as “a number of armed gunmen,” according to an IDF spokesman.

Unconfirmed reports from the south of the Strip also suggested that an Israeli tank protected by helicopters advanced toward the second-largest city of Khan Younis. The death toll in Gaza has now reached 700, while seven Israeli soldiers and three citizens have died. Israel said today that it would once again observe a three-hour truce to allow food, fuel, and humanitarian supplies into Gaza—although fighting continued intermittently during yesterday’s stoppage.(Source)
