Israeli Ground Forces Withdraw Entirely From Gaza As A 72-Hour Cease-Fire Takes Effect

Israel’s ground forces have withdrawn entirely from Gaza as a 72-hour cease-fire took effect Tuesday morning, an Israeli military spokesman said. “The Israel Defense Forces will be redeployed in defensive positions outside the Gaza Strip and we will maintain those defensive positions,” Lieutenant-Colonel Peter Lerner told reporters, according to Reuters. The move came after the Israeli military said they completed the “destruction of 32 terror tunnels” which allowed Hamas militants to enter Israel and carry out attacks.
