Hamas continues to fire a large number of rockets at Israel today, Ha'aretz reported, and Israel has now called up 16,000 more reserve soldiers to fight what looks to be a long and protracted Gaza war.
Meanwhile, many residents of the small towns that dot Israel's side of the border with Gaza have reportedly decided to flee north, fearful that Hamas terrorists will use their tunnels to stage attacks against them.
The death toll of Gazans, almost all civilians (and many of them children, in part because the bulk of Gaza's population is very young) is now well over 1,300.
56 IDF soldiers have been killed so far in this latest round of Gaza fighting.
