Israel PM says ready to expand Gaza operation after Hamas resumed fire

Israel is ready to “significantly expand” Gaza operation, stated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after Hamas militants fired at least nine rockets into Israel as the fifth day of Israel’s Pillar of Defense began.

Out of the nine rockets launched, three hit Israel and another four were successfully shot down by Israel's Iron Dome air shield, including the two rockets that targeted Tel Aviv. Two more were unaccounted for.

One of the rockets hit the roof of a four-story building in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, slightly injuring one person. Four others were in need of psychological help after the incident, according to Israeli medics.

It was also earlier reported that Hamas’ Qassam Brigades fired a “107 Rocket” at an Israeli warship, according to Al Arabiya.

On Saturday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that he would agree to a ceasefire if Hamas agrees to stop rocket fire from Gaza. And during the night, Hamas has sharply decreased the number of attacks on Israel.

Sunday morning Israel has continued to attack Gaza for the fifth day of its Pillar of Defense operation and took out a media compound with a targeted airstrike. At least six journalists were injured during the incident, Palestinian medical authorities reported.

Among the outlets damaged are local, Italian, German, Lebanese and Kuwaiti channels. An IDF report of the strike described the target as “a communications antenna used by Hamas to carry out terror activity against the State of Israel.” Israel sees al-Quds TV as a Hamas propaganda branch.

Later, reports that an 18-month-old Palestinian boy has been killed in new Israeli airstrike on Gaza came to light. And earlier, it was said that a total of three children have been killed since midnight in Gaza by Israeli shelling, according to the Twitter feed of Reuters correspondent Noah Browning in Palestine/Israel.

After these attacks on Gaza, the IDF reported that rockets were fired from Gaza.
