Israel's air strikes on Gaza are "as surgical as humanly possible," according to Mark Regev, the spokesman for the Israeli prime minister.

When asked if he thought Israel's response to Hamas rocket attacks was disproportionate, he told the BBC: "Hamas shoots its rockets indiscriminately into Israeli cities... we on the other hand are trying to be as surgical as is humanly possible."
