- 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.
