Israel says it has pounded Gaza over 1,500 times since Wednesday while Palestinian resistance fighters step up their retaliatory rocket fire on southern Israel. The remark comes as Palestinian rockets rain on the southern Israeli cities of Nirim, Ein Hashlosha and Ashdod as well as the southern region of Eshkol, leaving at least 26 Israelis injured. MRS/SS
