Israel Launches Ground Offensive

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (July 18, 2014) Twenty-five Palestinians have been killed since Israel began its ground operation in Gaza late Thursday yesterday, including three teenage siblings who died when a tank shell hit their home, health officials in the Gaza Strip said.

Israel says it's trying to stop rocket attacks and destroy the network of Hamas tunnels into Israel, but some hard-liners in Israel want their military to crush Hamas and drive it from power in Gaza.

France is getting involved in the search for a way to end the fighting.

France's foreign minister headed Friday to Egypt, Jordan and Israel as part of a diplomatic push for peace.
