Rockets bombard southern Israel

Rockets bombarded southern Israel in retaliation for Israeli aircraft, tanks and naval gunboats pounding the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

Ten Palestinians were killed yesterday on the operation's first day and more than 93 were wounded, while Israeli television reported that three people had been killed from a rocket strike from Gaza.

The operation started after the assassination of Hamas' top military commander, Ahmed Jabari, in response to days of rocket fire from the Palestinian territory.

Jabari's death was followed by a wave of Israeli airstrikes on more than 100 militant targets.
