Israel Pounds Gaza after Hamas Rocket Fire


Israeli warplanes pummelled Gaza with 40 to 50 air strikes that killed five Palestinians Saturday in response to Hamas's attacks on Israeli civilians. Terrorists slammed 23 rockets into Israel, deliberately terrorizing hundreds of thousands of civilians and defying international efforts to find a fresh ceasefire.

Gaza emergency services said five men were killed in Israeli raids – two Hamas terrorists who had been travelling by motorcycle through Al-Maghazi refugee camp, and three others who were pulled from the rubble of Al-Qassam mosque in the middle of the enclave.
