Is Gaza war in cards? The current round of fighting between Israel and Palestinian terror groups could prompt Israel to launch a ground operation in the Gaza Strip, a senior IDF official said Monday. The comments were made as Gaza terror groups continued to shell southern Israel communities with dozens of rockets and mortar shells Monday. 

Two such rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system over Ashkelon Monday evening.

Meanwhile, the IDF struck several targets in Gaza, killing at least two terrorists Monday night.
