Gaza: IDF threatens escalation if attacks continue

The IAF dropped notices from the air throughout northern Gaza early Saturday telling area residents that the IDF would continue to respond to Kassam launches with strikes and artillery bombardments in order to save the lives of Israeli civilians. "There was quiet over the past few weeks as long as rockets were not launched into Israel," the notices read. "Quiet will bring quiet. Continued terror attacks and Kassam launches will lead the IDF to strengthen its responses," residents were warned.
