The video shows soldiers training and receiving instructions on the operation they are about to undertake.

The security cabinet approved the operation after Israel agreed to the Egyptian cease-fire proposal on Tuesday, which Hamas rejected. In addition, the statement said, Hamas even fired rockets during the Thursday's five-hour humanitarian cease-fire.

The offensive will concentrate on destroying Hamas's network of tunnels.
