Direct hit on a house in Jerusalem. Approx. 20 rockets were fired at the center of Israel in the past couple of hours.

I have no inside tips- but I'm guessing the ground operations will commence tonight, probably around midnight or a little after...

1500 reservists called up, not 15,000, the news here has said repeatedly.

Either your news are off or you are off-1,500 was the initial number current for 2 days ago.
Between 10-15 thousand of the authorized 40,000 reservists had been called up so far.
http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-4539837,00.html

Earlier today a 5 men Gaza-borne terrorist team landed from the sea at Ashkelon beach and were ambushed by an IDF force. All 5 terrorists were killed, no casualties on the Israeli side.
Approx. 10 rockets had been fired at Gush-Dan (Tel-Aviv metropolitan) and an overall of 60 rockets were launched since this morning.

5 rockets fired at Gush-Dan just now. During the night Hamas' rockets hit as far as Hadera- a city that symbolizes the border between Israel's center and it's north, some 110(!)km away from the Gaza strip.
During the last round with Hezbollah (2006) they only targeted Hadera once, if memory serves.
Just to clarify- for every "exotic" rocket, several regulars are fired. Some 225 rockets were fired from Gaza at Israel in the last 3 days, 40 of them were intercepted by Iron Dome.

Elderly woman among fatalities in Gaza; Iron Dome intercepts rockets over Tel Aviv, Ashdod; 160 sites targeted in overnight offensive.


IDF strikes on Gaza overnight targeted some 120 underground launchers and 10 tunnels, a naval police base and domestic security offices, and the homes of eight senior Hamas member which the army says served as command centers and were used in coordinating the rocket fire on Israel's south.

A top Islamic Jihad militant was killed in the strikes, as well as five other Palestinians. Two more Palestinians, including an elderly woman, were killed as the strikes continued on Wednesday.


more,

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/1.603913


Al Jazeera is reporting that 40 people have died so far. Some being innocent victims that have nothing to do with the conflict but are being punished just for living in Gaza. Likewise, we have folks from Hamas trying to launch rockets and kill people, I dont think they have succeed at all yet, but as we know, the rockets from Hamas, put civilians at risk, just as some of the actions of the IDF put civilians at risk.

At this point, it seems like total warfare is a possibility. Just imagine if you had bombs exploding in the place you live, how would you react?

Wall Street Journal, July 7, 2014, claims 1500 reservists called up, not 15,000.




Quote:
In an unexpectedly rapid escalation, militants fired nearly 100 rockets and mortars from the Gaza Strip into Israel on Monday alone, the heaviest barrage since the two sides fought a brief war in November 2012. The Israeli military called up 1,500 reservists in preparation for a deterioration in the situation.

July 8, in Reuters,

The Israeli military said on Tuesday that, to support regular forces, it had called up 1,000 reserve troops out of a pool of 40,000 approved on Tuesday by the security cabinet. Some 1,500 other reservists have already been mobilised.

I don't care about the numbers, but I am looking for accuracy.

Namecalling and insults are not a good substitute for accuracy, though I notice that is all some posters have to offer.

One of your sources is dated by more then 24 hours, the other just inaccurate for whatever reasons.
The last number released to the general public yesterday at around 15:15 local time was 10-15 thousands out of the 40 authorized.
