BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 P.M.) – The Israeli Air Force has unleashed a massive assault on the Gaza Strip this afternoon, local Palestinian activists reported.

According to the reports, the IAF struck a number of Gaza border towns in retaliation for the rockets that struck the Israeli settlements earlier this afternoon.

The Spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) stated that at least 80 rockets have been fired from Gaza over the last 24 hours.

The hostilities began last night when the Israeli Special Forces killed a senior Hamas commander in the town of Khan Younis.

Following the death of the Hamas commander, the Palestinian and Israeli forces traded attacks throughout the day.

Neither side has committed to holding a meeting to re institute a ceasefire in and around the Gaza Strip.
