The IDF largely aimed at Hamas targets in its airstrikes last night in Gaza and Lebanon in order to avoid drawing Hezbollah into a wider conflict, according to a report in the Walla news site.

Walla said that ministers believe that it is not currently in Israel’s interest to embark in a massive military operation and accordingly preferred a more measured response to the rocket fire from the previous two days.
