Israel Extends Gaza Air Strikes, Downs Palestinian Drone

Israel struck back against fire from the Gaza Strip, Syria and Lebanon and downed a Palestinian drone that breached its airspace as its offensive against Gaza militants entered a seventh day.

Israel targeted about 100 “terror sites” in Hamas-controlled Gaza today while more than 70 rockets were fired at Israel from the Palestinian enclave, the military said. “The heavier the blow we give from the air the easier it will be to carry out a ground operation, if that proves necessary,” Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Zeev Elkin said today on Israel Radio.
