Leaders of the Palestinian National Resistance groups threatened on Sunday to launch more long-range rockets into Israel if the IDF continues its attacks in Gaza. The organization's spokesman said that they would aim for IDF bases as well as other targets, Army Radio reported. He also noted that the new Al-Nasser rockets had a 15-kilometer (10 mile) range, such that a rocket launched from the northern Gaza Strip may reach the southern coastal city of Ashkelon. Earlier, the IDF decided on the establishment of a no-entry zone in the northern 2 kilometers of the Strip, in which anyone entering the region would be considered armed, and would consequently be targeted by the IDF. The aerial attacks and targeted assassinations against major terrorists were also expected to continue in response to the week-long barrage of Kassam rockets on the western Negev and southern coastal area.
