Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed his country will not tolerate the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israeli terrority. He has even threatened to expand operations despite warnings from regional leaders.
Israel's assault on Gaza will continue until militants stop firing rockets, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says. Renewed airstrikes have killed at least 20, including several children, and injured 120.
Both the Israeli government and Hamas have accused each other of breaking an Egyptian-mediated ceasefire. An Israeli airstrike in response to militant-launched rockets killed the family of a Hamas leader.
Israel is continuing strikes on the Gaza Strip. A ceasefire broke down Tuesday amid rocket fire, air attacks and the failure by negotiators to agree on a longer-term truce.
Israel has announced that three rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip. Negotiators in Cairo were facing a new midnight deadline to end the bloodshed after agreeing overnight to extend an existing truce by 24 hours.
