JERUSALEM (AP) -- Undeterred by U.S. criticism, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Tuesday called a deadly Israeli military strike in the Gaza Strip a success and said there would be more operations like it.
Israel said Monday's raid in Gaza, which left 14 Palestinians dead and more than 100 wounded in the town of Khan Younis, was meant to put members of the Islamic militant group Hamas on notice that they could no longer feel safe in the crowded neighborhoods of Gaza.
The Palestinians said all the dead were civilians, while Sharon and the Israeli military said most of the dead were armed men killed in battle.
