Terrorists in the Gaza Strip pounded southern Israel with rocket fire on Thursday, November 15, killing three people as the Israeli military pressed forward with a second day of intense air raids and naval attacks on terrorist targets, the Associated Press reported. With Israel threatening to invade the Palestinian territory, the heaviest fighting between Israel and Hamas in four years showed no signs of letting up. The fighting, which began Wednesday when Israel assassinated Hamas’ military chief Ahmed Jabari, brought life to a standstill on both sides of the border. Gaza’s streets were mostly empty as the Israeli air force continued to strike targets. Residents across southern Israel remained huddled indoors or close to home, ordered by authorities to remain close to a network of public bomb shelters.
