More than 20,000 Israeli troops have entered the Gaza Strip since troops began a ground offensive on Friday, it has been reported, APA reports citing the Telegraph.

Two Israeli sources told Axios that at least two armoured and infantry divisions — amounting to more than 20,000 Israeli troops - had entered the enclave since Friday night in the largest military advance since the war began.

It comes as the Israeli military claims it struck Hamas gunmen inside their vast tunnel network beneath Gaza.

“The soldiers killed terrorists and directed air forces to real-time strikes on targets and terror infrastructure,” the IDF said.
