(MENAFN - The Peninsula) The armed wing of Hamas warned foreign airlines against flying into Tel Aviv yesterday even as an Israeli air strike in Gaza killed the wife and infant son of Hamas's military leader, Mohammed Deif, the group said, calling it an attempt to assassinate him after a ceasefire collapsed.

Palestinians launched more than 180 rockets on Tuesday and yesterday, mainly on southern Israel, with some intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, the military said. No casualties were reported on the Israeli side. Israeli aircraft have carried out more than 100 strikes in the Strip since Tuesday, Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon said.

Hamas and medical officials said 23 people had died in the latest Israeli raids, including Deif's 27-year-old wife and seven-month-old son. Deif, who has topped Israel's most wanted list for more than a decade, escaped the assassination attempt.

Several thousand furious mourners poured onto the streets of Jabaliya refugee camp to bury the woman and her son, baying for revenge.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel's Gaza campaign could last for a while. "This will be a continuous campaign," he told a news conference in Tel Aviv. Ya'alon added that "all options are open, including renewed ground operations" in Gaza.

Abu Ubaida, the Hamas military spokesman, said the group would target Israeli public sites such as soccer stadiums and Israel's Ben-Gurion International Airport. He warned airlines to stay away from this morning and cautioned Israelis living near Gaza against returning to their homes.

An Israeli airport spokesman said there were no disruptions reported in today's flight schedules.
