Rockets are now being fired on Jerusalem, setting off air raid sirens in the holy city. This coming off the heels of incoming attacks in Tel Aviv while Egypt's PM Hishal Kandil visits with Hamas in Gaza (apparently breaking a truce in doing so). If so, very bad call on Hamas' part (although, I never took them as thoughful planners).
There have now been close to 350 rockets fired into Israel since the attacks began on Wednesday.
As a response, Defense Minister Ehud Barak has approved an IDF to increase the number of reservists being called up, beyond the 30,000 already approved.
It's only getting uglier.
