    0

    JERUSALEM: Israel is “ready” to expand its operations in Gaza, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Sunday (Monday in Manila) after the air force struck 12 targets overnight following a surge in militant rocket fire. Speaking to ministers at the weekly cabinet meeting, the Israeli premier 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 militant groups have stepped up their fire on southern Israel. “Over the weekend, the IDF [Israel Defense Forces] attacked multiple targets in response to firing at Israel from the Gaza Strip. We are ready to expand this operation as per need,” Netanyahu said, without elaborating.
