    The Israeli airstrikes in Gaza continue. Just extrapolating from earlier unverified reports, 100 targets must have been hit by now.

    Israel steps up Gaza offensive and prepares for possible ground invasion
    Army source says 'we are entering a long operation' as country responds to sustained rocket attacks and teenagers' murder

    Israel has launched what it described as an open-ended and escalating offensive against the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, as air strikes and naval gunfire hit 50 sites overnight.

    As part of a new offensive dubbed "Operation Protective Edge", Israeli troops have been mobilised along the Gaza border and a limited number of reserves called up for a possible ground invasion.

    The strikes came after Israeli army sources said troops were being put on notice of "preparation for escalation".

    Rocket attacks from Gaza initially from Islamic factions other than Hamas have been increasing in recent weeks against the backdrop of a major Israeli operation against Hamas on the West Bank following the kidnapping and murder of three teenagers whose bodies were found last week.

    Air strikes by Israel, both following the discovery of the bodies and in response to rocket fire, have escalated in recent days despite assessments by analysts in Gaza and Israel that neither Hamas nor Israel wants a prolonged or bloody conflict.

    Despite the continuing rocket fire, Israel's prime minister, Binyanim Netanyahu, had shown a marked reluctance to be drawn into a military operation, offering Hamas "quiet for quiet" despite increasing political pressure from hardliners in his cabinet.

    The Israeli foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, on Monday formally announced his party was leaving the Netanyahu coalition over the Gaza issue.

    But despite this alleged government reluctance, the army has reportedly been ordered to prepare a significant expansion of its operation.

    "We are entering into a long operation," a senior IDF source said. "We are only at the start. Patience is required. We are preparing further steps and a gradual expansion of our order of battle."

    Nearly 300 rockets and mortars have been fired at Israel in recent weeks, including 80 projectiles on Monday alone, the Israeli army said. Israel has responded with dozens of air strikes in which eight Palestinian militants were killed on Monday, seven of them in a tunnel in an incident Israel claims occurred when Hamas members accidentally detonated their own explosives.

    In a comment piece in Yediot Ahronot, Israeli journalist Alex Fishman suggested: "As far as it is concerned, Hamas' going ballistic over Israel will position it anew as a relevant player in the region and relieve it from its political and economic troubles. The leaders of Hamas are no longer discussing a ceasefire. They are trying to ride the wave of violence by Israeli Arabs and Palestinians in the West Bank with the purpose of garnering the support of the entire Palestinian public. And the solution for hitting Hamas without paying a price has not yet been invented, whether in the Israeli home front or in the international arena."

    Israeli army spokesman Lt Col Peter Lerner said: "They [Hamas] chose the direction of escalation. So the mission will go on as long as we feel it is necessary to carry it out. We don't expect it to be a short mission on our behalf."

    Some analysts have suggested Hamas has been actively seeking to draw Israel into a ground conflict in Gaza.

    As Operation Protective Edge launched, sirens sounded over large areas of Israel's south and air raid shelters were opened.

    Among 50 sites the army said it targeted early on Tuesday were four houses belonging to militants, three militant compounds, 18 concealed rocket launchers, and other militant infrastructure sites. Most were targeted in air strikes, and three were attacked from the sea.

    Gaza health official Ashraf Al-Kedra said at least nine Palestinian civilians were brought to a Gaza hospital with light to moderate injuries, including several suffering from shock. He said some of the injured Palestinians were treated and released.

    Lerner said the army would gradually increase its attacks on Hamas in Gaza, and is recruiting additional reservists for a potential ground invasion.

    Hamas has amassed about 10,000 rockets, including longer range missiles that can reach "up to Tel Aviv and beyond", Lerner said, adding that Israel was preparing for the possibility that Hamas would launch rockets towards the city's commercial and cultural hub.

    Israel prepared to expand operation against Hamas in Gaza
    By Diana Magnay and Ed Payne, CNN
    updated 4:46 AM EDT, Tue July 8, 2014

    Video

    Jerusalem (CNN) -- An Israeli security operation against the militant group Hamas "will probably not end within several days," Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Tuesday.

    The development appeared to confirm fears that the conflict would continue to escalate.

    "We will not tolerate rocket fire and we are prepared to expand the operation and to exact a heavy toll on Hamas," he said.

    Overnight, Israel ramped up its airstrikes on Hamas in Gaza.

    The Israeli military's Operation Protective Edge against Hamas has entered a "substantial phase," with airstrikes hitting around 50 targets, including militant houses and military compounds, Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner told CNN.

    "We are determined to restore a state of security," he said.

    Hamas security sources reported at least 60 Israeli airstrikes across Gaza, including from F-16s, Apache helicopters and drones. At least 18 people were wounded, according to Ashraf Al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza.

    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas called on Israel to immediately stop its strikes, warning the operation would drag the region into instability.

    Abbas said a truce was needed to "spare the innocent from mass destruction."

    The two sides have been trading fire over Gaza's border with southern Israel as tensions spiral upward in the region.

    The Israeli military has already called up several hundred reservists and is planning to recruit many more to strengthen its positions around Gaza "with a view to possible ground maneuvers," Lerner said Tuesday.

    During the last offensive on Gaza in November 2012, 30,000 reservists were called up.

    Long-range threat

    Over the past day, 80 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel, Lerner said, adding that Israel is prepared for the possible threat of long-range rocket fire.

    Hamas' arsenal is estimated to have 10,000 rockets of varying ranges, according to Lerner, including some that can reach as far as north as Tel Aviv and beyond.

    "They have substantial armaments which can strike the soft underbelly of Israel," he said.

    Israel says the aim of its offensive is to strike Hamas in Gaza and stop rocket fire into Israel that threatens civilians.

    "It's an unacceptable situation," Lerner said. "We're not willing just to let it go by and we have to operate in order to protect them."

    Lerner said at an earlier news briefing that the Israel Defense Forces' position had changed from focusing on deescalation to preparing for a deterioration of the situation.

    'Red lines' crossed

    The conflict between the two sides has worsened in the past few days.

    Israeli strikes on Gaza during Sunday night into Monday killed eight Palestinian militants and wounded at least 15 people, according to the Health Ministry in Gaza.

    "The enemy has crossed the red lines and will be made to pay the price for its crimes," Mushir Al-Masri, a Hamas leadership figure and member of the Palestinian parliament, wrote on his Facebook page Monday. "The blood of our martyrs is precious ... and is fuel for the intifada and the resistance."

    After that statement, the barrage of rockets from Gaza into Israel increased, with Hamas claiming responsibility.

    Political strains

    The conflict is creating strains within the governing coalition of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, head of Yisrael Beiteinu party, said in a press conference Monday that he told Netanyahu of his intention to dissolve his party's joint faction with Netanyahu's Likud party, saying it was "not working."

    Lieberman criticized Netanyahu's handling of Gaza.

    Tensions are also increasing between Hamas, which controls Gaza, and the more moderate Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.

    Killings of teenagers

    The Gaza situation has deteriorated amid anger over the kidnappings and killings of Israeli and Palestinian teenagers.

    The bodies of three Israeli teenagers, who had been missing for nearly three weeks, were found last week in a field in the West Bank. The Israeli government blamed Hamas for their deaths. The militant group had praised the kidnappings but denied it was responsible.

    Two days after the Israelis' bodies were discovered, a Palestinian teenager, Mohammed Abu Khedair, was abducted near his home in east Jerusalem. His charred body was later found in a forest.

    Israeli police have said there is a "strong indication" the Palestinian teenager's killers may have been motivated by a desire for revenge.

    Suspects questioned

    His death, condemned by leaders from both sides, sparked clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli security forces in several areas of Jerusalem.

    Police have questioned six suspects about what they did "before and during the murder" Abu Khedair, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Monday.

    Israeli authorities announced over the weekend that a taxi driver had confessed to killing an Israeli Jewish teen in May. Shelly Dadon, 19, was kidnapped, stabbed to death and left in an abandoned parking lot. The suspect's motivation was believed to be Palestinian nationalism, police said.

    LIVE UPDATES: Netanyahu instructs IDF to 'take off gloves' in fight against Hamas
    IAF strikes 50 targets in Gaza Strip as rocket fire on Israel's south continues.
    By Haaretz | Jul. 8, 2014 | 12:10 PM | 18 Comments

    Israel launched a series of airstrikes on Gaza militants early on Tuesday, dubbing the offensive "Operation Protective Edge." More than 50 targets were hit in the offensive.

    Meanwhile, rocket fire on Israel's south continued. According to the IDF, eight projectiles were launched between 2 and 6 A.M.

    Militants in Gaza fired more than 85 rockets toward Israel on Monday evening, with Hamas openly claiming responsibility for some of the launches for the first time since the current round of fighting began. The rockets hit several major cities in the south and, also for the first time in the current fighting, caused alarms to go off in central Israel and Jerusalem. The barrages lightly wounded two Israelis and caused property damage.

    The Israel Defense Forces called up 1,500 infantry and Border Police reservists in preparation for further escalation, after the security cabinet decided on Monday afternoon to intensify attacks against Hamas and other terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip. A senior official said the ministers want to refrain from a large-scale military operation for now, but they instructed the army to prepare for significant expansion of its current operations.

    Palestinian officials said Gaza was bracing for further Israeli attacks. They said Hamas had evacuated likely targets and its leaders had gone underground lest Israel attempt to assassinate them. Hamas also issued a statement on Monday night demanding that the Palestinian Authority take action against Israel, saying national unity sometimes requires paying a price.

    12:24 P.M. President Elect Reuven Rivlin says in southern town of Sderot: "It's impossible that people are sitting in cafes and restaurants in Tel Aviv and in Jerusalem, while in Sderot people are sitting in bomb shelters. We're at war with Hamas because they declared war on us. Hamas want to bring the state of Israel to an end, and make life in Israel impossible, and we have to handle that. We have to fight back to ensure the safety of Israeli citizens. It's not our right, but our duty." (Shirly Seidler)

A short time ago Ya'alon held a discussion on the issue with Home Front Commander Brig. Gen. Eyal Eisenberg and other high ranking officials in the defense establishment.

    "We're heading toward a campaign against Hamas, which will not be over after a few days," Ya'alon said at the discussion, adding that Hamas intends to exact a price from the Israeli home front. "In the last hours we've attacked with force and hit dozens of Hamas assets, and the IDF is continued with the assault, in a way which will exact a very heavy price from Hamas. We'll not tolerate rocket fire at Israel." (Gili Cohen)

    8:37 A.M. Palestinians report at least 17 wounded following the IDF airstrikes in the Gaza Strip overnight. Among the wounded are nine family members from Khan Yunis who suffered light to moderate wounds when their home was bombed, and two children, a seven-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl, who were moderately wounded.

    According to reports, Israel Navy Dabur class patrol boats also participated in the overnight bombings, and targeted an Izz a-Din al-Qassam base northwest of Khan Yunis. Targets in the Rafah area and in the central Strip were also attacked, and at least three youths were wounded in the central Strip, two of them moderately and one seriously. To the north of the Strip, hits were reported in open agricultural areas in Beit Hanoun and in sites northwest of Gaza City, including a Hamas base near Jabalya.

    Hamas' military arm said the strikes on the homes of its top members have "crossed the red line," and that the group would attack targets at the heart of Israel. Hamas top official Musa Abu Marzouk says "attacks on civilian homes is a serious escalation," and adds that "the time when attacks on homes went without a response has passed." (Jack Khoury)

    8:20 A.M. The IDF Spokesperson's Unit says the targets hit by the Israel Air Force strikes overnight include the homes of Iad Sakhik, a top Hamas operative who participated in rocket and mortar fire; Abdallah Hashash, a Hamas operative from Rafah involved in recent rocket fire; Samer Abu Daka, top Hamas member in Khan Yunis involved in terror activity; and Hassan Abdallah, top Hamas operative also involved in recent rocket fire.

    6:48 A.M. A military source said in a media briefing that Operation Protective Edge will be expanded in the coming days, and will include prepping up forces for a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip. According to him, "The operation will intensify with regards to the quality and quantity of targets the Israel Air Force is attacking in the Strip, after Hamas stepped it up yesterday. The IDF is continuing to draft forces for the Strip, and intends to draft more, even though the effort is currently concentrated on IAF strikes."

    Regarding how long the operation is expected to last, the source said the army "is not committed to any end-date. This could take days and even longer. The IDF is acting in attempt to bring back the calm the south enjoyed before the operation, and there are many avenues for actions and targets, but that requires patience." (Shirly Seidler)

    6:00 A.M. Israel's air force strikes 50 targets in Gaza as part of Operation Protective Edge. According to the military, more than eight rockets were fired toward Israel over the past four hours. (Gili Cohen)

    Oh, I know. It is just irritating that their enemy hides behind their women and children while they lob missiles over into Israel, and the Israeli government feels compelled to risk harm to its citizens in this way. I would hope (with rational leadership, ha!) that if, say, Mexico were to launch an attack into El Paso, we'd go in as quick as possible and obliterate the attackers. We wouldn't give them 48 hours to stop trying to kill our citizens. Damn "world opinion", protect your people.

    Boy, do I hear ya on that!

    I'm reminded of a joke about an Israeli, a German, and an American being captured by headhunters while on safari.

    The headhunter says they can each have a wish before he lops of their heads.

    The American wishes for a hamburger and is given time to eat it.

    The German wishes for a beer and after finishing it the headhunter asks the Israeli what his wish is.

    The Israeli produces a gun ( I like to think it is a Tavor-21 ) and shoots the headhunter dead.

    The German and American are dumbfounded and say to the Israeli, "If you had a gun the whole time, why did you wait so long? Why didn't you just shoot him, right away?"

    The Israeli replies, "What and face world condemnation for acting too quickly?"

    There was an attack on a house in Khan Younis causing a number of casualties which vary by source.

    + An Israeli site quotes Gaza sources as saying that the house belonged to a commander in the al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas.

    in order to demonstrate that they have the capability.

    There was an Iron Dome interception over Ashkelon, otherwise the same steady stream of short-range rocket fire from Gaza continues.

    Doug Pologe @DougPologe 29m

    Now there are warnings for longer range rocket fire, places like Gedera and even Rishon LeTzion.

    Doug Pologe @DougPologe 28m

    Also Rehovot. Before Nov 2012 this was well out of range for Gaza rocket fire.

    Iron Dome interception near Gedera. https://goo.gl/maps/QdxC1

    Reshet Beit (IL): Continuous IAF attacks in Gaza since 10:30. Focus is on targeted assassinations, including residences of Hamas activists.

    I would guess that an IDF ground operation is almost certain now?

    You can't fire hundreds of rockets at civilians and expect no retaliation. If the PLO can't control the terrorists, the #IDF must. #Israel

    Doug Pologe @DougPologe 14m

    Not confirmed: The Palestinian Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the rocket fired at the Tel Aviv region.

    Doug Pologe @DougPologe 13m

    This was said to be an "M-75", which is produced in the Gaza Strip and based on the Iranian "Fajr-5"
    .

    Doug Pologe @DougPologe 12m

    Despite the closure on Gaza, there have been reports that components are constantly being smuggled in, from which rockets are assembled.
