Israel leader: World pressure won't stop offensive

JERUSALEM - Israel's prime minister says he will not cave in to international pressure to stop a military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

Benjamin Netanyahu told a news conference Friday that Israel will continue its offensive until rocket fire out of Gaza is halted.

He says he has had "good conversations" with a number of world leaders in recent days, including President Barack Obama and European leaders.

"No international pressure will prevent us from acting with all power," he said.

Netanyahu said Israel has attacked more than 1,000 targets in Gaza during the four-day operation and is using twice the force it used during a similar offensive in 2012. More than 100 Palestinians have been killed.
