Israeli aircraft pounded Palestinian militant targets across Gaza for the third straight day. The army said it targeted weapons factories and storage facilities, after terrorists fired more than 40 rockets at Israeli towns. In one of the air strikes, missiles were fired at the car of Islamic Jihad terror chief Mohammed Khalil. He was killed along with his bodyguard. In Judea and Samaria, troops arrested 90 Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists, bringing the total in two days of raids to around 300.
