JERUSALEM, Aug 2 (Reuters) - Some Israeli ground forces withdrew from the Gaza Strip on Saturday, two Israeli television stations reported, after the military said it was close to achieving its main war goal of destroying Hamas cross-border tunnels.

Asked about the reports, an Israeli military spokesman said she could not comment on troop deployments.
