Israeli jets bombard Gaza with 150 strikes in response to barrage of rockets – The Washington Post

 Israel struck more than 150 targets in Gaza in response to a barrage of rockets from the Palestinian territory, its military said Thursday, in a significant escalation even as negotiations took place on a longer term cease-fire.

Militants in the strip fired more than 180 rockets and mortars into Israel between Wednesday evening and midday on Thursday, the Israeli military said. Most were intercepted or fell on open ground but at least 11 Israelis were injured after some projectiles lammed into residential areas, blowing out windows and leaving cars and buildings pockmarked with shrapnel.
