Gaza city, Gaza Strip (AP) Israel’s Prime Minister says the aerial destruction in Gaza is only phase one.

A spokesman for Ehud Olmert says he’s told president Shimon Peres that “several” phases of attack have been approved as Israel keeps up its relentless string of air attacks on Hamas-ruled Gaza today.

Thousands of Israeli ground troops massed along the border and waited for a signal to attack.

The U.N. Says more than 360 Palestinians have been killed, most of them members of Hamas security forces but at least 64 of them civilians.

In Gaza City, five government buildings were badly damaged in air attacks today.

Militants have pressed on with their assaults, killing three Israeli civilians and a soldier and escalating with an arsenal of longer-range missiles, shifting the battles closer to Israel’s heartland.

Past Israeli operations all failed to stop the rocket attacks.
