Attacks from Gaza on Israel have ramped up significantly in the last several days.

The four soldiers were wounded, one severely. More than 80 rockets have been launched from Gaza into Israel since the attack on the jeep on Saturday, 10 November. At least three Israeli civilians were injured in the rocket attacks. Geography is beginning to rear its head again, as Israel has also sustained incursions into the Golan from Syria in recent days.

A Sudanese official claims that four Israeli aircraft conducted a strike on the factory.
