Gaza rockets hit deeper into Israel; prompts increased airstrike

|By:, SA News Editor

Tensions are mounting in the Middle East, after Gaza militants fired new M-302 rockets deep into Israel, armed with a range of 93 miles. Israel has ramped up its air strike campaign as a result, targeting 486 militant positions including rocket-launching sites and military equipment and smuggling tunnels.

The newly acquired rockets put about two thirds of Israel's 8M people into Gaza's range of fire, increasing pressure to neutralize any threats.
