An explosion rocked Gaza City's stadium on November 17 as Israel's cabinet authorized the mobilization of up to 75,000 reservists, preparing the ground for a possible Gaza invasion. As several rockets from Gaza hit southern Israel and other rockets were fired toward Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, the Israeli military deployed a fifth Iron Dome antimissile battery in the Tel Aviv area.
As tensions are growing, a military spokesperson says troops are preparing for a long fight along the Gaza border. (Reuters)
