Transcript for Deadly clashes grip Israel and Palestinian territories
Overseas now to the crisis in the Middle East. Israelis and Palestinians on a path to all-out war escalating attacks leaving dozens dead. Matt Gutman is on the ground in tel aviv. Matt. Reporter: Hey, good morning, Michael. Israeli military says that over a thousand rockets were launched from gaza into Israel. This is the impact crater of one of them. It sent a fireball throughout this neighborhood incinerating these cars and firing shrapnel like this into these homes. A woman was killed in that home and the violence we're seeing he is not just in here, in gaza and Jerusalem but across Israel today. Overnight those rockets fired raining down on Israel. Israel's iron dome defense system intercepting many. Those explosions lighting up the night sky. About 3:00 A.M. Here and sirens are out again. One balcony, the rockets have been fired from just behind me. Reporter: Sirens sounding, residents scrambling for cover in central Israel home to nearly half of the country's population. This home obliterated but its occupants survived in their bomb shelter but many of those rockets making it through. This one blowing up a bus just south of tel aviv. Bystanders racing towards that fire. In all, six killed and dozens wounded from rocket fire in the past 24 hours. The Israeli military saying about a thousand rockets have been launched towards Israel from gaza over the past 48 hours, the most in years. Hamas calling the rocket attack a reprisal for the flattening of this 13-story building in gaza. The Israeli military saying it struck what it says are at least 500 hamas and jihad targets. Palestinian health officials reporting 43 people killed, at least 10 of them children including this 11-year-old whose body was carried through the streets to his funeral. And violence and another threat. Fiery clashes in several mixed arab/jewish towns inside Israel proper. Over 200 protesters wounded in street battles there with Israeli police. This is the first time that we've seen that kind of violence in those mixed jewish/arab towns in over a generation. They are largely protesting Israel's treatment of the Palestinians. Now, the U.N. And the U.S. State department are calling for calm but overnight the Israeli military said it's calling up thousands of reservists and said this is not going to be a short campaign, George. Feels like it could get worse before it gets better.
