Fears of war in Gaza

Fears of war in Gaza

There are fears an all out war could emerge, following a week of shelling between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas in Gaza city.

The Israeli Defence Minister has announced this morning 30,000 army reserves have been called up to assist the developing war.

It comes after Israelis killed the former Hamas leader Ahmed Jaabari yesterday, when they bombed his car, as he was travelling through the city.

The Palestinian toll has now risen to 15, while 3 Israeli civilians have been killed after a rocket attack.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the country will defend itself against attacks from the Palestinian militant group Hamas, despite calls for them to both deescalate violence.

He says the government will not stand for terrorism.
