Israel to Resist International Pressure over Gaza

BBC – Israel will resist foreign pressure to halt its operations in Gaza,Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said.

He said Israel had attacked more than 1,000 targets there since Tuesday, and was using twice the force it used during a similar operation in 2012.

A total of 105 people have died in the Israeli air strikes in the territory, Palestinian sources say.

Meanwhile, Gaza militants have continued to fire rockets into Israel, causing damage and injuries.

Mr Netanyahu said he had held “very good, positive” telephone consultations with US President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

But he added that “no international pressure will prevent us from acting with all power”.
