Israeli PM not ruling out Gaza ground invasion

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Israel may launch a ground invasion into Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has indicated, after a weekend of escalating violence.

By lunchtime yesterday more than 70 rockets and mortars had landed in Israel from Gaza within 24 hours, leaving eight Israelis injured and six Palestinians dead in retaliatory strikes. "Israel will not sit idly by in the face of attempts to attack us. We are prepared to intensify the response," Mr Netanyahu said. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
