Israeli Official Says Military Push In Gaza Will Continue

(Jerusalem) -- Israel is continuing its push into Gaza with the aim of destroying Hamas tunnels. A spokesman for Israel's prime minister says the military action will take as long as it takes.
Spokesman Mark Regev said Hamas will learn that it can't launch rockets into Israel without paying a steep price. The Israeli Defense Force said its Iron Dome defense system intercepted rockets over Tel Aviv Friday. President Obama has said he supports Israel taking steps to increase its security. At the same time, he's urging Israel to do everything it can to limit civilian casualties.

Mark Regev, the spokesman for Israel's prime minister, says Israel will not stand idly by and let Hamas attack its citizens. Play Clip
