Israel weighs response after rocket barrage leaves one dead, several wounded

More than 70 rockets fired from Gaza into Israel; Prime Minister convenes top ministers.

More than 70 rockets and mortar shells were fired at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip since Thursday night, killing one person and injuring at least 18, six seriously. Extensive property damage has been reported. The Home Front Command, together with mayors and council heads in the affected areas, announced the cancelation until further notice of all public events including parties, performances and soccer games.

Last night, the forum of eight senior cabinet ministers convened to discuss the escalation in the south.

The anonymous source also stressed containment efforts. “No one wants an Operation Cast Lead 2,” he said.
