A plume of smoke rises over Gaza during an Israeli air strike, as seen from Sderot in Israel.
On Saturday morning, Israel bombarded the Gaza Strip with nearly 200 air strikes, reportedly widening its targets to include the prime minister's headquarters, a police compound, smuggling tunnels, a soccer stadium, and Hamas cabinet headquarters. Hamas reportedly continued to retaliate with rocket strikes of its own on Israel, including a rocket strike Friday aimed at Jerusalem. Gaza officials say Israel's Saturday strikes left 10 people dead. Meanwhile, Israeli troops are amassing on the border with Gaza, and as many as 75,000 reservists have been called up, raising the possibility that a ground invasion is imminent.
