Tasnim: Approximately 5 US troops involved in Gaza's ground operation



Approximately 5 US troops

involved in Gaza's ground operation

The Iranian news agency Tasnim reported, citing a source, that nearly 5 US troops participated in the Israeli army's ground operation on several axes in the Gaza Strip on Friday evening.

According to the Agency's report

"three teams and several brigades of United States troops participated in the night operation, as Israeli army forces attempted to enter

the Gaza Strip from areas east of Al-Brij, Beit Hanoun, Beit Lahia and Khan Younis", and the Agency noted that "Israel used a similar plan, in its 2014 war on Gaza".

According to reports

the reason for the Israeli army's progress in these areas was to divide

the Gaza Strip into two or three sections

and to sever contacts between Palestinian forces before

the launch of the next phase of the operation.

On Friday evening

Israeli army spokesman Daniel Hagary announced the expansion of Israeli army ground operations, and the army later said: "Our forces carried

out airstrikes on 150 underground positions of Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

On Friday evening

Israeli military forces launched a ground attack on several axes in the Gaza Strip, the heaviest of which was on the northeastern axis of Beit Hanoun

north of the Gaza Strip, and east of

the Burayej camp in the middle of the Gaza Strip.

The Al-Qassam Brigades

the military wing of Hamas

and the Jerusalem Companies, the military wing of Islamic Jihad, declared that their fighters were confronting Israeli army forces on all axes and that they had engaged in violent clashes with advanced forces.

On Saturday evening

violent clashes between IDF forces and Palestinian resistance fighters

were taking place on a number of axes in the Gaza Strip.

Jerusalem Companies" said in a brief statement

"We bombed mortar forces in the far northwest of the Gaza Strip."

The Israeli Minister of

Communications announced on Saturday that Tel Aviv would cut all ties with SpaceX, owned by businessman Elon Musk, over the latter's permission to use Starlink systems in Gaza.

Communications Minister Shlomo Carey criticized

the US businessman for his decision


"Hamas [Starlink satellite communications] will use it to carry out terrorist activities. No doubt about it, we know, and Musk knows. My office will cut all ties with SpaceX ".

After the disruption of telecommunications

and Internet services from the Gaza Strip on Friday evening due to Israel's massive and heavy raids, a number of international institutions

and the Palestinian Ministry of Health

and the Palestinian Red Crescent announced that they could not provide

any services under the disruption of communication with their units.

On Friday evening

the Palestinian telecommunications company Jawwal confirmed the complete disruption of telecommunications and internet services in the Gaza Strip

following Israel's announcement to expand its ground operations in the Strip.

Social media activists

specifically on Elon Musk's X platform, quickly launched a campaign demanding that

the American businessman provide

the Gaza Strip with a "Starlink satellite communications"

system like he did in Ukraine.

Elon Musk responded to

the activists' demands, stressing that he would provide recognized international organizations in the Gaza Strip with access to the "Starlink" space network.

Starlink will provide communication to internationally

recognized organizations that provide assistance in Gaza.
