JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday that militants in the Gaza Strip will “pay a very heavy price,” after a day of Gaza rocket fire and Israeli air strikes on the Palestinian coastal enclave.

“We are at the height of a weighty campaign,” Netanyahu said in televised remarks alongside his defence minister and military chief. “Hamas and Islamic Jihad paid … and will pay a very heavy price for their belligerence … their blood is forfeit.”
