Ministers said to approve massive aerial bombardment on Gaza

Ministers in the high-level security cabinet approved a massive aerial bombardment on Gaza following the rocket fire, but not a ground incursion, the Ynet news site reports.

“Hamas must be dealt a heavy blow, and yet, everyone understands our limitations,” an Israeli official tells the site. “We have no desire for large wars.”

The official expresses hope the escalation of hostilities will be over in two or three days.
