24-hour update as of 17 November 2012. Continuous Israeli airstrikes have been ongoing for the third consecutive night, causing fear and panic among the civilian population as the Israeli military operation has entered its fourth calendar day. Heavy explosions have been heard all over the Gaza Strip during the past 24 hours. Whereas targets during the first two days were mainly rocket launching sites, it seems that the operation has now entered a second phase, targeting infrastructure. A number of government buildings and security facilities in Gaza City were destroyed and there were intensive airstrikes in the tunnel area in Rafah during the night. A ground operation has not been launched.
