Netanyahu: Israel Ready to 'Expand' Gaza Operations


Israel is "ready" to expand its operations in Gaza, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned Sunday after the air force struck 12 targets overnight following a surge in terrorist rocket fire. Speaking to ministers at the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said the almost-nightly military strikes on Gaza could be expanded should the need arise. His remarks came after a sharp hike in tensions along the border as terrorist groups have stepped up their fire on southern Israel.
