Transcript for Israel Plans to Continue Airstrikes in Gaza Despite Death Toll
Yes. All right, we turn overseas. Israel's prime minister saying air strikes would continue on the gaza strip despite the mounding death toll. Be Benjamin netanyahu warning a ground war could be next. Alex Marquardt has the latest. Reporter: The death toll has climbed past 120. Most of them according to the united nations are civilians. Israel says it will not bow to international pressure to stop its operations as long as rockets are being fired into Israel. Overnight, deafening explosions as Israeli missiles land in gaza. More than 1100 Israeli strikes so far. We race with an ambulance crew to the site of one of those hits. This crowd pulling out what is a wounded man out of a mosque that was struck just moments ago. Chaos in the plans as we sped to the hospital. In the friend a man cradle's the man's head. As the casualties rise so does the anger and support for hamas to keep firing rockets at Israel. The Normal people is attacked by Israel. We are thanks hamas and we put our hands over hamas hands, they're supporting the people here in gaza. Reporter: But Israel says hamas is using sites like that mosque to hide rockets, almost 700 fired into Israel so far sending Israelis running in terror into bomb shelters and interceptor rockets into the sky. No Israelis have been killed. But the prime minister said Friday that the operation would continue until quiet returns. That operation could soon include a ground invasion with more than 30,000 reserve troops now called up as Fors mass along the border with gaza. The head of Israel's military says he's just waiting for the order to send ground troops into gaza which could cause the death toll to sky rocket. He accuses hamas of using civilians as hostages. Dan, bianna. The situation continues to escalate. So many innocent people in the way. Alex, thank you.
