Violence Escalates in Israel -- PICTURES

November 17, 2012

As the rocket attacks between Israel and the Gaza Strip increase, so do fears of all out war in the region. Israel continues to amass troops along the Gaza border in preparation for a ground assault, and 75,000 military reservists have been put on stand by.

Overnight, an Israeli missile strike destroyed the office of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. But Gaza rocket attacks continue as well. On Saturday, air raid sirens sounded in Tel-Aviv for the third day in a row.

Below, photographers in the region capture the increasingly bloody conflict.
