OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Israel threatened it would launch a massive ground and air military attack on the Gaza Strip in response to new rockets Palestinian factions fired into southern Israel in retaliation to Israeli occupation raids.

Israeli Channel One said Saturday morning that Israeli authorities, using unidentified mediators, have sternly warned Palestinian factions in Gaza that Israel would respond harshly with intensive air strikes and possible ground operations should the rockets continue.

The warnings came after the Israeli Political-Security Cabinet, chaired by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, convened on Friday evening, the source said..

Since Tuesday evening, Israel has killed 11 Palestinians and injured dozens in an onslaught of air strikes across the Gaza Strip. Those attacks came after the factions declared a ceasefire following another series of Israeli attacks that killed 15 Palestinians and injured some 60.

The ceasefire between the Israeli occupation and Palestinian factions which was brokered by Egypt, was broken every time by the Israeli occupation prompting the resistance factions to retaliate.
