Army: Israel to expand Gaza ground offensive

July 20, 2014 10:24 A.M. (Updated: July 20, 2014 10:24 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israel's army said Sunday it was expanding its ground offensive against the Gaza Strip, as the bloodiest conflict since 2009 entered its 13th day with a death toll of over 350.

"This evening, the ground phase of Operation Protective Edge expands, as additional forces join the effort to combat terror in the Gaza Strip and establish a reality in which Israeli residents can live in safety and security," the army said in a statement.
