-- and this is -- Fox News alert the crisis in the Middle East is intensifying tonight after Hamas militants launched a rocket attack on Jerusalem.
And now the Israeli Cabinet has authorized activating up to 75000.
Now hundreds of missiles have been launched into Israel from Gaza following Wednesday's targeted killing of the Hamas military -- on Wednesday.
And now the leader of Egypt says he will -- house against Israel's quote blatant aggression.
Our own David Lee Miller standing by at the Gaza border tonight with the very latest -- it.
-- it's almost 5 in the morning here along the border -- about a couple hundred yards from Gaza close enough to actually hear duke.
To actually hear the call to -- are coming from my many of the mosques.
We also heard during the past several hours and heard and saw loud explosions.
The Israeli military keeping up the pressure targeting rockets.
Rocket launching sites as well as the militants themselves.
There have been in the last few hours to reported so called targeted assassinations.
The death toll now stands at 29 Palestinians killed during this conflict.
Thirteen of the militants sixteen civilians.
Three Israeli civilians also have been killed the Israeli military saying that its campaign is going to continue until Hamas begs for a cease fire.
Meanwhile in just the last 24 hours Hamas militants fired at least 150.
Rockets in the direction of Israel.
About half of them though were intercepted by Israel's missile defense system but as -- mentioned.
At least one of those rockets landed dead just outside of Jerusalem.
This was the first time that.
Jerusalem has come under attack since 1970.
The rocket landed in an empty field -- word no injuries.
According to Hamas the rocket that was launched prisoner rainy and made weapon called the -- -- five.
The Israeli military has tried repeatedly to knock out as many of those are a -- and rockets as possible.
Apparently though they still have a number in the arsenal also hit today -- Tel Aviv a rocket landed in the sea again no injuries.
But as the heartland of Israel.
Continues to come under pressure.
The government here also under political pressure to stop the rocket attacks and lastly -- At this hour as you mentioned it looks increasingly likely that there could be a ground incursion taking place in just the next few hours.
We have heard -- -- sounds like tanks off in the distance moving closer to the border.
Approve the mobilization of 75000.
Reservists and the area not far from where I'm standing has become a closed military zone.
So it looks increasingly like.
Things are going to escalate -- All right thank you David and stay safe for joining us now from Tel Aviv is -- the non he is a member of the Likud Party in the -- -- -- thank you for being with us and -- -- very early in the morning there what we have reservists now being called up we see tanks beginning to move towards the border.
All indications are that this looks like preparations for potential ground war.
What's going on.
Children without a very determined to do do look every necessary.
To bring peace to the south of -- that.
Look at tobacco for the peak gentlemen you can quiet now but -- -- out of millions of people without throughout the -- those again.
Children that's why wouldn't we have to be very determined and the government decided -- would do -- -- necessary.
Now we got that only form they'll only -- every targets -- -- -- you have to -- we would go into got out and clean up the mess them yet.
Well one of the things that makes -- more problematic for the Israelis.
Is number one you got -- -- Who has banned anti Israel for a long time and part of a terror group called the Muslim Brotherhood.
Coupled with now they've got Russian.
Laser guided missiles that they're using with a far greater range -- they have had in the past.
But that Biden is still pretty -- because they've got they if the date with a president.
I didn't do condemning the Hamas and the -- of -- -- the -- of it I did not he didn't think anything.
About to begin division.
And I think this gives him after the fact if they want to get support from the US for the EU that being fought out of money that they extend and -- -- that -- -- that they always.
Now what do you make of what should they -- -- now that Egypt has sided with Hamas and us.
What should the United States -- you like to see the United States to believe we give them billions and billions and billions of dollars in US -- And I think the United States this is one of these moments where they ought to take a stand president says he supports Israel says he'll always support Israel.
Israel is under fire rockets -- pounding their cities.
-- the president cut off aid to Israel would you like to see I'm Tom sorry cut off aid to Egypt.
The US wants them to stability in the region and the weather event than the -- wasn't senate.
Endorsing either man in the last -- allow us.
But I think -- about time to be division.
Make it offend you want to get the money from the US enough to stop we divided us you have to stop and -- think Hamas you know shortly after the US.
-- hobby that I didn't come up with -- aren't -- -- vision that's going down the US.
Think -- that I also with the Hamas you know one hand and all that and come to the US and get didn't have the fewest votes.
Let me ask you this.
I have been saying I believe the way to look back in history.
And refer to this is the time of the radical islamists.
We now know what happened with the Arab Spring in Egypt Muslim Brotherhood is in charge we see what happened in Libya.
We don't know what's gonna in -- unfold in Syria.
On top of that I would argue that Jordan has been weakened as well and they are probably ripe for takeover and we see the influence of Iran all throughout the region.
My correct with this should be an accurate description the rise of the radical islamists.
I think you're up politically correct and that I would -- some of the Arab Spring I was quoted out of wing -- And do what's happening now within reason that -- being -- -- that are coming from Iran.
There are being -- it into the Sinai Peninsula.
And then into got out and then using it against the event so I Iran is it cold even in division and we -- today would doesn't mean the fouls in Lebanon.
And we would have to who would then eventually now revealing that Hamas but.
That the main.
The soles of -- vote is coming from Iran and -- President Obama.
When -- last night -- -- spoke with by mr.
Anything that he understands that even at the right to defend itself.
But he did it do everything -- let's break now it's easy because got targeting the military targets but if we have to bullying.
He's movie -- believe they -- need the US thank you -- Buick that's.
Thank you for being Willis coming up next --
