Two men belonging to the Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad (IJ) were killed in an Israeli airstrike March 27 in the Gaza Strip as regional tensions remain high despite talk of cease-fires, Reuters reported. IJ claimed responsibility for the recent rocket attacks in Israel, and Hamas spokesman Ismail Rudwan said militant leaders are committed to the cease-fire as long as Israel was committed. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel does not want to escalate the situation since the frontier has been relatively quiet since the end of the December 2008 Gaza war. Netanyahu added Israel will not hesitate to use the might of the Israel Defense Forces against those that attack its citizens.
