Israel prepares to extend Gaza ground offensive: PM

Israel is preparing to step up its Gaza offensive, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday after ground troops were sent into the Palestinian enclave.

"My instructions ... are to prepare for the possibility of significantly widening the ground operation, and the military is preparing accordingly," he told reporters before convening a meeting of cabinet ministers to discuss the operation.
