Hamas and Islamic Jihad operatives in the Gaza Strip are traveling around in ambulances loaded with Palestinian children in order to deter Israeli forces from firing at them, the Israeli military said on Friday.

The IDF launched a ground incursion into the Hamas-ruled territory in a bid to destroy the network of underground tunnels used to smuggle and transport rockets and missiles.
