images from the middle east. The middle east on the brink. Air raid sirens, blasting, now, as israel's commercial capital races for more rocket attacks. This is first time tel aviv has come under attack in two Nearly two dozen people have been killed. Abc's alex marquardt is in the middle of it all right now, in gaza. Alex? Reporter: That's right, josh. A lot of activity all around us this morning. There was supposed to be a truce for a couple of hours. But it quickly became clear that wasn't going to happen. As dawn broke, a series of very lo israeli missile strikes. Israel says it struck over 150 sites overnight. Some of those sites were rocket-launching sites, which we can see from here. And we've seen palestinian militants launching rockets from those sites into israel for much of the morning. Israel says more than 300 rockets have been launched into israel since this escalation began. Almost half of them have been stopped by the iron dome anti-missile system, which you can see working here in this video. Meanwhile, some 16,000 reservists have been called up, as tanks and troops mass along the gaza border, preparing for a possible ground invasion. So, now, three days into this huge escalation of violence, no sign that either side is backing down.
