Israeli Forces Intensify Airstrikes on Gaza

From a Washington Post story by Miriam Berger, Noga Tarnopolsky, and Marc Fisher headlined “Israeli forces intensify airstrikes on Gaza; more hostages are released”:

From the air, Israel hit 320 “terror targets” in Gaza, including Hamas tunnels and dozens of command centers, Israel’s military said Monday. On the ground, residential buildings were leveled and more than 400 people were killed in a 24-hour period, according to Gaza’s Hamas-run Health Ministry.

On the 17th day since Hamas’s brutal surprise attack, the Israel-Gaza war expanded in words, deeds and scope, even as diplomatic and humanitarian drives to ease the conflict accelerated.
