Israel Bombs Gaza Media and Government Sites, Warning of 'Expansion'

Israel pressed its assault on the Gaza Strip early Sunday, deploying warplanes and naval vessels to pummel the coastal enclave as Israeli forces widened the onslaught from mostly military targets to media offices and centers of government infrastructure including on Saturday the four-story headquarters of the Hamas prime minister.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu coupled developments on the ground with a blunt warning that Israel was ready to significantly expand the attack, a possible reference to a much-heralded ground attack.
