Israeli commandos clash with Hamas militants on Day 6 of Gaza offensive

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli naval commandos clashed with Hamas militants in a raid on the coast of the Gaza Strip on Sunday, in what appeared to be the first ground assault of a six-day Israeli offensive on the territory aimed at stopping Palestinian rocket fire. With aerial support from fighter jets, the Israeli force attacked a site in northern Gaza used to launch long-range rockets, an Israeli military spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner, said. Militants opened fire, wounding four commandos, but the launch site was hit, he said. #Politics #United States #India #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Latin America #opinion
