Israel Politics Deadlocked While Tensions Build in the North and South

On Saturday while Israelis were celebrating the Sabbath at 9 p.m. sirens were sounded in Southern Israel when ten rockets were shot from Gaza.  Most of these rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome Defense system but one rocket managed to get through and damage a house in the settlement city of Sederot.  There were no injuries. Israel carried out a series of aerial attacks in response to the rocket attack. Officials in the Gaza strip said that a 27-year old man was killed during an air strike on a military training camp and three other Palestinians were wounded. Hamas threatened to respond on what it called “Israel crimes and aggression against our people.”
