Israel Aims For Upper Hand in Gaza Conflict

Multimedia

Israeli warplanes continued to pound targets in the Gaza Strip on Monday as Israel's Defense Minister declared an "all out war" against the Islamic militant group Hamas and its Gaza government.  

Palestinian officials say Israeli airstrikes have killed more than 300 people since Saturday, some of them civilians.  Israel says rockets launched from Gaza against Israeli towns provoked the conflict.  

But some say the response has been disproportionate and may be an attempt by Israel to restore its image.
