Wisconsin woman braces for war in Israel

By John Mercure. CREATED Jul 10, 2014

Elissa Gutterman lives in Tel Aviv, Israel, but her heart is in Wisconsin.  Gutterman attended Bayview and Nicolet High Schools.  Her parents still live in Fox Point.

The week has been a tense one for Gutterman as the death toll continues to rise in the Gaza strip and Hamas launches new missile attacks against Israel.  20,000 reservists have been called in up in apparent preparations for a possible ground operation.

Gutterman says the air raid sirens are a daily part of life.
