Hamas strikes back at Israel

Militants in the Gaza Strip pounded southern Israel with rocket fire, killing three people as the Israeli military launched a second day of intense air raids.

Zaka volunteers and rescue personnel carry the plastic-wrapped body of a victim from an apartment in a building in Kiryat Malachi, Israel, that was hit on Nov. 15, 2012, by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip. Militants in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip killed three Israelis in a rocket attack liable to deepen a bruising Israeli air, naval and artillery offensive against Palestinian rocket squads. The casualties were the first in Israel since it launched its operation the previous day with the assassination of Hamas' top military commander. (Associated Press)
