n Thursday, militants in the Palestinian territory of Gaza fired rockets that struck the area surrounding the Israeli city of Tel Aviv, the latest evidence that an Israeli offensive launched on Wednesday could be broadening into an all-out war. No one in Tel Aviv was hurt or injured, but at least 19 people — 16 Palestinians and 3 Israelis — have been killed since the commencement of the operation, known as Pillar of Defense. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak (pictured) said targeting Tel Aviv, Israel's largest city, "represents an escalation, and there will be a price for that escalation that the other side will have to pay."
