    Fighting started yesterday and last time I Checked were about 15 casualties in Gaza 3 children with escalating conflict. Egypt is sending tanks into the Siani desert in preparation. WWIII may not be too far off now.
  2. GAZA (Reuters) - Two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip targeted Tel Aviv on Thursday in the first attack on Israel's commercial capital in 20 years, raising the stakes in a showdown between Israel and the Palestinians that is moving toward all-out war.

    Earlier, a Hamas rocket killed three Israelis north of the Gaza Strip, drawing the first blood from Israel as the Palestinian death toll rose to 16, five of them children.

    Israeli warplanes bombed targets in and around Gaza city for a second day, shaking tall buildings. In a sign of possible escalation, the armed forces spokesman said the military had received the green light to call in up to 30,000 reserve troops.


    First blood has been spilled from both sides.
  3. At war on twitter as well. Crazy.

    I might just be "care" about this. But hasn't this, gone on for ages now?
  5. The tensions have been there forever, and this conflict is similar to previous situations but no. This is a new war that started yesterday and looks to get much worse by weeks end.
  6. In a series of attacks it’s calling “OpIsrael,” Anonymous went on a spree of website defacement and takedown attacks Thursday, calling on members to flood forty sites with junk web traffic designed to knock them offline and defacing websites including the privacy firm Israeli Security Academy and a blog the group described as belonging to the Israeli Defense Forces. “We Anonymous will not sit back and watch a cowardly Zionist State demolish innocent people’s lives.” reads one message posted to a defaced site, along with an image of smoke rising over what appears to be a Palestinian city.


    Anonymous making good on its word.

    Damn, something nasty is going to happen. Lately the tension around the Syria-Turkey border is rising too, because of the civil war of Syria.

    It seems Israel will not let Middle East see peace until her ambitions fulfilled!...

    Live stream from Gaza half the power is out but you can still hear drones and explosions.

    UPDATE: Several airstrikes on Gaza in the past 10 minutes. Close to a dozen. Reuters and RT camera were nearly taken out and briefly went offline. Sounds of other noises, possibly gunfire or tank fire can be heard along with the buzzing of drones overhead. If the rumors were right, then there is just under an hour until the alleged ground invasion begins (7pm Eastern time). The increase in airstrikes and possible gunfire could be an indication of the invasion. Though if you hear a lot of gunfire, that means ground combat and that is probably your best indication of troops

    Israel could always abide by UN Resolutions and pull out of occupied territory!

    Of course that won't happen because the US offers Israel full protection in and out of the UN, regardless of how many civilians they annihilate (with weapons supplied by the US), regardless of how much land they occupy. Time the US did the right thing.

  12. The U.S. Embassy issued the following “security message”:

    The U.S. Embassy will be operating at reduced staffing levels on Friday, November 16, and routine consular services are being suspended for that same day. Embassy families have been asked to not send their children to school on Friday, November 16. Non-essential official travel by Embassy staff to the south of Israel remains prohibited.

    U.S. citizens are encouraged to exercise caution and take appropriate measures to ensure their safety and security in light of the escalating level of violence in Gaza and Israel. U.S. citizens should pay close attention to their surroundings and news reports, and follow the civil defense guidance provided by the Home Front Command. The Government of Israel’s Home Front Command website provides information on how to choose a secure space or room in a home or apartment. Visitors may also seek information on shelters from hotel staff or building managers. Please click here for further emergency preparedness guidance provided by the Home Front Command.
