Israeli soldiers light candles for the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah near Kibbutz Mefalsim, just outside the northern Gaza Strip December 28, 2008. Israel pounded Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip from the air on Sunday for a second day and prepared for a possible invasion after killing nearly 290 Palestinians in the opening rounds of a fierce offensive. Despite the assault, militants fired some 80 rockets into Israel, emergency services said. REUTERS/Baz Ratner (ISRAEL)
