GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israeli airstrikes on Gaza City have flattened three buildings and killed at least 42 people. Despite international efforts to broker a cease-fire, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signaled Sunday that the fourth war with Gaza's Hamas rulers would rage on. In a televised address, Netanyahu said the attacks were continuing at "full-force" and will "take time." He said Israel "wants to levy a heavy price" from Hamas. The violence marked the worst fighting here since the devastating 2014 war in Gaza. The airstrikes Sunday hit a downtown street of residential buildings and storefronts over the course of five minutes just after midnight.
