  1. Israeli Commandos Launch Raid Into Gaza

    Israeli air strikes against Hamas-controlled Gaza have been wreaking havoc all week, and Israel acknowledged its first ground incursion on Sunday. Israeli navy commandos reportedly launched an operation along the northern Gaza coast in a bid to destroy a long-range rocket launch site used by Hamas. President Obama has offered to negotiate a truce, and the UN has demanded a ceasefire, but Israel refuses to halt its campaign until Hamas stops firing rockets at Israeli cities.
