There's been a serious escalation of hostility on the Gaza border tonight - 4 Israeli soldiers have been injured - 2 seriously when terrorists in Gaza fired an anti-tank missile on an IDF patrol.
The IDF has responded resulting in deaths and injuries in Gaza. Claims are that 4 civilians have been killed.
Rockets are now being fired on Israeli cities - there are reports that Katyusha rockets are being fired.
Analysts are interpreting this as a qualitative escalation by Hamas terrorists and the Israeli military echelon is going to be convening an emergency session soon.
It is Hamas which is seeking an escalation and the sole responsibility for this is Hamas. Hamas is clearly trying to drag Israel into a diplomatically costly war like Cast Lead.......
Last week there were also terrorist attacks on the IDF
On Sunday 11/11 Israeli troops fired warning shots into Syria, responding to a mortar round which hit an Israeli military post. Also three Syrian tanks entered the demilitarised zone between the two countries a week ago.
