Israel says shoots down Gaza drone as calls for truce mount

Israeli ground forces carried out their first operation Gaza today, after dropping leaflets in the northern city of Beit Lahiya warning residents to leave their homes. Thousands fled as Israeli forces planned to target enemy rocket infrastructure built in between houses in the city of 70,000. About 160 Palestinians, half of them civilians, have reportedly been killed so far in the conflict, and over 1,100 injured. Israeli airstrikes have hit over 1,100 targets in Gaza since July 8.

Palestinian officials claimed that the death toll from Israeli strikes in Gaza has passed 100, with some 700 people wounded. Hamas said it was prepared for a battle of "many long weeks" and vowed to keep fighting. The UN Secretary General called for a ceasefire, warning that the conflict could spread to the entire region, and a draft resolution has been prepared. The US offered to help broker a ceasefire.

Palestinian officials said Israeli strikes in Gaza that began on July 8 have killed at least 77 Palestinians so far. Militants in Gaza continued to launch missiles into Israel; both Islamic Jihad and Hamas' Al Qassem Brigades have claimed attacks. President Abbas has denounced the Israeli attacks, and has not criticized Hamas for launching missiles at Israel.

Three Israeli teenagers, one of whom is a US citizen, were kidnapped on June 12 from a bus stop in Gush Etzion, south of Bethlehem. The Israeli prime minister's office issued a statement holding the Palestinian Authority responsible for the youths. The kidnapping was claimed by two groups: one calling itself the West Bank branch of the Islamic State in Iraq and Sham (ISIS), and another called the Brigades of Global Jihad.

A group called Al-Sabirin [The Patient] for the Victory of Palestine a.k.a. Hosn, headed by former Islamic Jihad leader Hisham Salem, announced its formation as a resistance organization, and said its first martyr is Nizar Issa, who died in an explosion at a Gaza training camp in May. Tensions emerged between Fatah and Hamas despite last week's formation of a unity government.
