The Middle East is on the brink of a ground war. The Israeli government is warning of a ground war as the back and forth air strikes with Hamas intensifies. According to Israel, militants fired more than 130 rockets at the Jewish state.
Israel says its Iron Drome Missile defense system has intercepted a number of those attacks. Israel also unleashed an air assault of its own, aimed at crippling the militants rocket-launching ability.
At the U.S. embassy in Tel-Aviv, people were rushed to an underground shelter.
How close is Israel to launching a ground invasion?
