ISRAEL PREPARED FOR RESPONSE TO HAMAS ATTACKS
Israel is prepared for a major ground operation in the Gaza Strip, security officials said Wednesday, if Hamas continues to escalate tensions along the border.
Overnight, terrorists operating out of the Strip fired 45 rockets and mortars at Israeli towns in the western Negev.
At least three of the rockets exploded in Israeli towns in the Eshkol Regional Council near the border.
While there were no reports of injuries, several buildings sustained damage in the attacks.
