Paramedics and residents in southern Israel ran for cover Wednesday as sirens once again warned of incoming rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

More than a week into the war, and despite growing international pressure for a cease-fire, Israel's military said Wednesday it widened its strikes on militant targets in the Palestinian territory's south to blunt continuing rocket fire from Hamas.

Gaza health officials say at least 219 Palestinians have been killed.

Twelve people in Israel have died.
