Israeli PM Speaks Of 'Prolonged' Campaign In Gaza

Updated: Monday, July 28 2014, 03:28 PM CDT

Israel's prime minister says Israelis must be "ready for a prolonged campaign" against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Benjamin Netanyahu also said in a televised speech Monday that a demilitarization of Gaza must be part of any future solution in the territory.

Meanwhile, a strike on a Gaza park killed 10 people, nine of them children. Gaza officials say the deaths and injuries were caused by Israeli airstrikes. But an Israeli army spokesman says the site was hit by rockets fired by Gaza militants that fell short of their targets in Israel.

The Israeli military also says Gaza militants have infiltrated into Israel through a tunnel under the Gaza-Israel border and opened fire on soldiers. The army announcement said searches for the militants were underway. Israeli media reported that five of the militants were apparently killed in a firefight.

A truce between the sides remained elusive as diplomats sought to end the fighting at the start of the Eid al-Fitr holiday, marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
