Israeli war planes intensified attacks across the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, targeting senior Hamas leaders and bombing a coastal area, where four Palestinian boys were killed.

The renewed violence came after Hamas formally rejected a cease-fire proposal that had been accepted by Israel to end the 9-day-old conflict that has left at least 213 Palestinians and one Israeli dead.

Israel targets top Hamas leader

Hamas fired dozens of rockets into Israel on Wednesday. In a text message to The Associated Press on Wednesday senior Hamas figure Sami Abu Zuhri said, "we informed Cairo today officially that we don't accept the proposal they made."

The Gaza Interior Ministry's website said Israel warplanes carried out dozens of airstrikes Wednesday, targeting 30 houses, including those of senior Hamas leaders Mahmoud Zahar, Jamila Shanti, Fathi Hamas and Ismail Ashkar.

The Israeli military did not immediately comment on the strikes.

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
