Israel has dropped leaflets on the Gaza Strip warning residents that it is to escalate its military action.
There is speculation the leaflets may mean Israel will adopt new tactics in its battle with Palestinian militants.
On Saturday, Israel attacked dozens of Hamas targets, including what it says were rocket-launching sites, weapons stores, and smuggling tunnels.
Meanwhile, Hamas militants have fired several rockets at Israeli towns, injuring two Israelis in Ashkelon.
In September, the US Congress approved a plan to sell Israel 1,000 bunker-buster bombs, of the Guided Bomb Unit-39 (GBU-39), that use GPS to find their way and are able to penetrate deep fortified constructions, such as Iran's nuclear facilities.

Hmmm if it does escalate,what are the chances of hezbollah joining in and giving israel a bloody nose? I wonder what *escalation* means exactly also.. four digit numbers of civilians dead instead of three? hezbollah have been stocking up for quite a while,im pretty sure they are not for ornamental purposes.
GAZA, Jan 10 (KUNA) -- Several Israeli soldiers were reportedly killed early Saturday in northern Gaza Strip by activists of Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of Islamic Jihad.
