Israel's premier told reporters Wednesday that Tel Aviv will intensify its airstrike campaign on the Gaza strip that has left at least 43 dead and over 300 wounded thus far, according to Agence France Presse.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to "ramp up" the strikes on Gaza to so-called punish Hamas "and other terror organizations in Gaza."
"We have decided to further intensify the attacks on Hamas and the terror organizations in Gaza," Netanyahu's office quoted him as saying.
"Operation Protective Edge," the name Tel Aviv has given to the airstrike campaign, has been called "barbaric" by Israel's allies, with many countries calling on Israel to end the operation.
