Israeli artillery pounds Gaza in 10th day of fighting

Israeli leaders said they were pressing on with an offensive against Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

An Israeli military spokesman acknowledged that with an estimated 12,000 missiles and mortars in the groups' Gaza arsenal, rockets will continue to pound Israel.

These hostilities are the most serious between the militant group and Israel in years, and in a departure from previous Gaza conflicts, have helped fuel street violence in Israeli cities between Jews and Arabs.
