The latest in a sustained barrage of Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip. This building in Gaza City houses local media offices. At least three journalists working for Al Quds Television were wounded in the blast. Israel views that station as pro-Hamas, the Islamist group that governs the embargoed enclave. Here along Israel's border with Gaza, troops are massing - standing by for a potential land invasion. The Jewish State has mobilised up to 75,000 reservists in preparation for the possible offensive. The country has launched nearly 1,000 strikes since the assault began last Wednesday, killing at least 51 people, half of them civilians including 14 children. More than 500 rockets fired from Gaza have hit Israel, killing three civilians and wounding dozens. On Sunday, Israel's Iron Dome air shield shot down two rockets fired toward Tel Aviv. One car was damaged by falling debris, but no casualties were reported. Earlier on Sunday a rocket struck an apartment building in southern Israel.
