Israel Bolsters Forces Along Volatile Gaza Border

by Wochit 1:01 mins

The Israeli military bolstered forces along the volatile border with the Gaza Strip on Thursday in response to intensifying rocket fire as tensions remained high over the deaths of three Israeli teenagers and an Arab youth who Palestinians allege was killed in a revenge attack. Buses carrying Israeli forces could be seen heading to the Gaza border area, where soldiers milled about organizing their equipment. Military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said the troop movement was "defensive" but Israel remained prepared for any additional violence from the Palestinian territory. Israeli defense officials, speaking on condition of anonymity under military guidelines, said the deployment included tanks, artillery and ground forces. Israel's last major operation in Gaza, a territory controlled by the Hamas militant group, took place in late 2012.
