GAZA (Al Aqsa/CNN) - Israeli defense forces have launched a ground operation into Gaza.

This operation follows 10 days of bombings and airstrikes by Israeli forces.

The raids began after three kidnapped Jewish teenagers' were found dead.

At least 230 people have been killed in Gaza since air attacks began nine days ago. One Israeli has been killed.
