Here’s an update on the latest escalation of violence between Israel and Hamas and Palestinian militants. Israel has begun a ground operation against Hamas in the Gaza Strip, but it’s reportedly only tanks and artillery. Israel says no ground troops have entered Gaza, but 9,000 reservists have been called up and at least three brigades have massed on the border.

Since Hamas began firing missiles into Israel, the Iron Dome defense has blocked about 90% of the missiles, but even so, the rockets have killed one Israeli soldier and six civilians, including one child. Gaza reports at least 109 Palestinians killed, including 28 children, but Israel says many of those may be due to Hamas’ own missiles misfiring.

Also, for those trying to draw equivalencies or say that Israel is the aggressor/oppressor: please note that Hamas is deliberately shooting missiles at unarmed civilians. Israel is targeting known Hamas militant headquarters, which they deliberately place amid civilians to use them as human shields.

    It is FAR past the time for restraint. Israel has the right to defend itself, and perhaps should go "cut the snakes head off", so to speak. Whether it is covert strikes against the leaders, or rolling steel across the entire Gaza, Israel has that right by them attacking her .
