Israeli leader threatens Gaza militants

Israel's prime minister has issued a tough warning to Gaza's Hamas rulers, saying those who attack Israel are risking their lives.
Benjamin Netanyahu voiced the threat in a policy speech to Israel's parliament. He spoke shortly after his foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, called on the government to topple the Islamic Hamas regime in Gaza.
The Israeli military has been battling rocket-firing Palestinian militant squads for several days. The fighting has killed at least 10 Palestinian militants and an Israeli civilian. It is the worst Israeli-Palestinian violence in months.
In the speech, Netanyahu vowed to act with "strength and determination" against the militants.
He said: "Whoever attacks Israel is risking his life."
