Flares light up the sky over Gaza City, Friday Aug. 1, 2014. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that Israel will destroy Hamas' tunnel network in the Gaza Strip designed for deadly attacks inside Israel, "with or without a cease-fire." Israel expanded what started July 8 as an aerial campaign against Hamas and widened it into a ground offensive on July 17.
