The rocket siren did not go off.

This would be the first confirmed violation of the ceasefire since Operation Protective Edge ended.

Hamas claims they don’t know of any rocket that were launched today. They also initially claimed to have had no connection to the kidnapping of the 3 boys in Gush Etzion in June, until they finally admitted that they did it.

On Monday, the siren went off, and the IDF said no rockets were launched at Israel, but Gazan sources claim they did launch a rocket, but it fell short and it landed in Gaza.

There are sources in Israel that claim that internally the IDF is double-checking to see if perhaps a rocket was launched yesterday, after all.

Haim Yelin, the head of the Eshkol regional council said in response to the attack, “We will not accept rockets falling on our communities. We will assess how our leaders choose to protect its citizens. We expect the government to act to bring quiet to the region.”

  1. Why is there no effort to "buy" residents of Gaza to move to the West Bank or Jordan and start a new life with a substantial bank account?
    Plenty of moderate Palestinians will do it and that will thin out the "extreme population density" in Gaza and make those people's lives better. More positives will be realized by this approach than without and whatever conflict persists, will be more manageable.
