Egypt warns Hamas: Continued rockets may bring Israeli war

Egypt warned Hamas that continued rocket fire from Gaza into southern Israel could possibly prompt an Israeli war on the Strip to root out the source of the attacks, Reuters quoted a source familiar with the situation as saying on Wednesday.
"Egypt has told Hamas the Gaza situation was similar to that before December 2008," the source said hinting that a second Operation Cast Lead may be in the offing if attacks on Israel's Negev communities continue.
"Hamas does not want a new escalation unless it is forced into it," the source said.
