Netanyahu pledges 'lethal' response to Gaza violence after blocking aid

Netanyahu pledges 'lethal' response to Gaza violence after blocking aidIsrael’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Palestinian Islamist group Hamas on Wednesday of a “lethal” reaction to any renewed Palestinian violence on the Gaza border, after blocking aid to the strip in response to the wounding of an Israeli soldier. Weeks of relative calm in the Gaza Strip ended Tuesday when Israeli soldiers came under fire along the border with the enclave in two separate incidents. Israeli tanks in response struck two Hamas positions in Gaza, killing a militant, while overnight Israeli warplanes struck what the army said was a Hamas military camp in northern Gaza.
