Transcript for Israel Launches a Missile Barrage
And ABC chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz has been traveling around the region and joins me tonight from Jerusalem. Martha, you were out at that border in gaza today. What are you seeing on the ground? Reporter: We were up on a hill today, Cecilia, in a town that has been hit numerous times by rockets from gaza. It's just a few miles away from gaza. But today, standing up on a hillside with a lot of residents of that town, we saw a barrage of air strikes from the Israelis into gaza, one after another. It was truly relentless. And the residents were almost like they were watching a sporting event. Wow, and you also spent some time with the Israeli army. How close, everyone is wondering, are they to crossing that border? Reporter: Well, we were with an Israeli unit, very nearby an Israeli unit of tanks. We saw dozens and dozens of tanks, everywhere along that border with gaza. They are certainly ready, they are waiting for an order, but we really don't know whether that order will come to launch any kind of ground invasion. The Israeli officials don't really want to do that, but if some rockets hit tel aviv, if you lose lives in a big way in Israel, all things could change. That really would be a game-changer. Cecilia? Tensions still growing there tonight. Martha Raddatz on the front lines. Thank you very much. And you can see more of Martha's reporting tomorrow morning on "This week with George stephanopoulos."
