The Israeli Air Force reportedly hit 70 targets between 9 and 10pm Thursday, including underground medium-range rocket launching pads, bringing the total number of IAF strikes in Operation Pillar of Defense to over 300.
Gaza terrorists continue to lob rockets at Israeli civilians, firing over 275 since Pillar of Defense began.
Two rockets reportedly headed toward Tel Aviv, causing air raid sirens to be sounded in the city for the first time since the Gulf War, and was the first time rockets from Gaza have ever been in range of Israel’s financial capital.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak said 30,000 reservists may be called up to provide support to a broader ground war in Gaza.Malkah Fleisher
