Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Gaza’s Hamas rulers are paying a “heavy price” for the rocket attacks against Israel.
    
At the start of his weekly Cabinet meeting Sunday, Netanyahu said Hamas is not only responsible for its own militant actions but also those of the Islamic Jihad group, which operates in the Gaza Strip.
    
Netanyahu says he has instructed the military to continue its large-scale airstrikes against militant sites in Gaza and has ordered armor, artillery and infantry reinforcements up to the besieged enclave’s perimeter.
    
Gaza militants have fired more than 400 rockets at Israel over the past day, killing one Israeli man, in one of the most intense flareups of violence in years. Israel says it has struck back against some 220 targets, killing eight militants. A pregnant Palestinian woman and her young daughter have also been killed in the fighting.
