Israel: Three civilians killed by rockets fired from Gaza as violence escalates
2012-11-15
Rockets fired from Gaza into southern Israel killed three people and injured six on Thursday, Israeli officials said, as Israel launched numerous airstrikes across the Gaza Strip and the military showdown lurched closer to all-out war.

Eleven Palestinians have been killed and 100 injured in Gaza since Wednesday.

The funeral was being held Thursday for Ahmed Jabari, the senior Hamas military commander, who was one of those killed in the Israeli Defense Force airstrikes.

The IDF said on its website that the three people who died in Israel Thursday were civilians.

It added that 43 of the rockets from Gaza had been intercepted by its defense systems, and that it had targeted 156 "terror sites" in Gaza since the start of what it called "Operation Pillar of Defense."
