Big thanks to everyone posting. It's a real shame you cannot access this information in the media on tv anywhere. Just goes to show what's important for us to 'consume' and what is not.

Replying to your other post also....

Egyptian authorities are not as behind the Gaza people as many think. But that is a discussion for another time. I don't want to start in-thread drama.

Hope you feel better after a rest! ~hugs~

There was at least one TA-4J recently dropping leaflet bombs over Gaza. Maybe that's what they dropped.

A "serious" effort to work toward Middle East peace "starts with no more missiles being fired into Israel's territory," U.S. President Barack Obama said Sunday.



Rocket attacks into Israel were the "precipitating event" for the fighting under way now, he said. "We are actively working with all the parties in the region to see if we can end those missiles being fired without further escalation of violence in the region."



The United States and a number of European countries have put the brunt of the blame for the current crisis on Hamas, saying Israel has a right to protect itself. Arab and Muslim nations, meanwhile, have accused Israel of being the aggressor.

Thank you kids jacked my computer cords for their computer games last night, so I am having to use their computer until they get up and switch them back for me.

What are the latest developments from the Gaza region? I hear no air raids or drones right now, have the ground troops been released? Are they still amassing on the border?

What are the current statistics on the bombardment from last night?

Thank you.

Israel facing 'millions' of cyber-attacks over Gaza




JERUSALEM — The Israeli government on Sunday admitted it had become the victim of a mass cyber-warfare campaign with millions of attempts to hack state websites since the start of its Gaza offensive four days ago.

Speaking ahead of the weekly cabinet meeting, Israeli Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz said the government was now waging war on "a second front -- of cyber attacks against Israel."

Steinitz said in the past four days, Israel had "deflected 44 million cyber attacks on government websites. All the attacks were thwarted except for one, which targeted a specific website that was down for six or seven minutes."

From everything we read yesterday Israel promised retaliation would be brutal if Hamas did not stop firing into Israel.

Day 5 could prove to be the most deadly since the beginning of this war on the 14th.

Gaza update summary

Israel, Egypt talk Gaza ceasefire as strikes widen





Hamas is linking a truce deal to a complete lifting of the border blockade on Gaza imposed since Islamists seized the territory by force. Hamas also seeks Israeli guarantees to halt targeted killings of its leaders and military commanders. Israeli officials reject such demands. They say they are not interested in a "timeout," and
want firm guarantees that the rocket fire will finally end. Past ceasefires have been short lived.

As the offensive moved forward, Israel found itself at a crossroads — on the cusp of launching a ground offensive into Gaza to strike an even tougher blow against Hamas, or pursuing Egyptian-led truce efforts.

"The Israeli military is prepared to significantly expand the operation," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting.

At the same time, Gaza militants continued their barrage of rocket fire, firing more than two dozen at Israel on Sunday, including a longer-distance projectile that targeted Tel Aviv for a fourth straight day. One rocket damaged a home in the southern city of Ashkelon, punching a hole in the ceiling. Israel's "Iron Dome" rocket-defense system shot down seven rockets, including the one aimed at Tel Aviv, police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said. Eight Israelis were wounded by shrapnel Sunday, one of them moderately.

Expanding targets to strike the homes of suspected commanders appeared to mark a new and risky phase of the operation, given the likelihood of civilian casualties in the densely populated territory of 1.5 million Palestinians.

New strikes on Sunday leveled homes in Gaza, burying residents under the rubble as rescuers frantically dug for survivors. In all, 57 Palestinians have been killed, including 24 civilians, and more than 400 civilians have been wounded, medics say.

Israel launched the operation last Wednesday by assassinating Hamas' military chief and carrying out dozens of airstrikes on rocket launchers and weapons storage sites in response to mounting rocket attacks. Over the weekend, the operation began to target Hamas government installations as well, including the offices of its prime minister.

Nobody will guarantee that Israel will stop. And since they started this whole show, they ought to be the one to stop first. There's only so much the people in gaza can take.
