Tracking Israel's advances and confirmed Hamas ambushes in northern Gaza

CNN has analyzed footage released by the Israel Defense Forces and propaganda videos from Hamas, as well as satellite imagery and social media videos. They show that troops have closed in on Gaza City on three axes – from Gaza’s northwest border along the Mediterranean coast, from the northeast near Beit Hanoun, and from the east to the south of the city, approaching the sea, as well as a number of clashes following the expanded operation.
