Gaza operation to continue till goals reached: Israeli PM
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Sunday said the military operation in Gaza will go on until Israel's security goals are reached.
Ahead of the weekly cabinet meeting held at Tel Aviv's Kirya military headquarters, Netanyahu said there will not be any immunity to those who fire at Israeli citizens, Xinhua reported.
"It's true for all fronts," the prime minister said, referring to the rockets fired from Lebanon and Syria towards northern Israel Saturday night.
"We are determined to complete the task and Operation Protective Edge will continue until we complete this mission," Netanyahu said.
Five Israelis were injured, one of them seriously, from a mortar explosion in southern Israel's Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council Sunday noon.
Israel continued to attack targets in the Gaza Strip.
According to the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) spokesperson, more than 30 rockets and shells have been fired since midnight from Gaza towards Israel, mostly to southern Israel.
Ashraf al-Qedra, health ministry spokesman in Gaza, told reporters a Palestinian was killed and five injured in an Israeli air strike Sunday.
At least 82,108 Palestinians have been killed and 10,660 wounded and as many as 68 Israelis have been killed since the conflict started in July, the health ministry in Gaza said.
