    Palestinian groups have launched a salvo of rockets towards Israel after an Israeli air attack killed a top Islamic Jihad commander in Gaza City.

    That has led to more Israeli air attacks, which have since killed another eight Palestinians.

    However caretaker Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was not seeking to escalate the attacks.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from southern Israel.
