WATCH LIVE: Gaza City as Israel strikes back against devastating terror attacks
At least 700 Israelis are dead.
Israel continues to face attacks from Gaza, including the southern Israeli city of Ashdod being struck Monday with a “huge rocket barrage,” according to Fox News Foreign Correspondent Trey Yingst.
“We saw multiple impacts across this heavily populated area,” Yingst said, while reporting from the scene. “We took cover next to a building, but you could see the rockets coming off the Gaza Strip and slamming into buildings in this community.”
The Israel Defense Forces also said in a tweet that “Sirens [are] sounding in Jerusalem and across Israel.”
Images emerging out of Ashdod showed several cars completely destroyed and debris covering roads.

“A huge rocket barrage just targeted the city of Ashdod,” Yingst said in a video posted to X, formerly known as Twitter.
There were no immediate reports of casualties.
The reported attack comes as Israeli forces recaptured areas near the Gaza Strip that had been overrun in a Hamas mass-infiltration over the weekend, according to Reuters.
The war, which began early Saturday morning on the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, has killed at least 1,100 people and left more than 2,000 wounded.
