Israel steps up strikes in south Gaza overnight, residents say

Israeli aircraft and tanks stepped up strikes in southern Gaza overnight, residents say, after it announced plans to pull back some troops, a move the US said signaled a gradual shift to lower intensity operations in the north of the enclave.

Israel says the war in Gaza has many more months to go but would be shifting into a lower gear in the northern part of the Strip after three months of all-out war.
