Escalation on Gaza Border
By Micah Halpern
Friday May 3, 2019
I've Been Thinking:
Egypt takes its role as mediator between Israel and Gaza very seriously. Tensions are rising and the conflict might escalate.
In response Egypt has invited or rather summoned the leaders of Hamas specifically Yahya Sinwar and the leaders of Islamic Jihad to Cairo.
This week numerous balloons and kites were launched in to Israel was well as a rocket which missed its target and landed in the Mediterranean Sea. The rocket was launched by Islamic Jihad - they accepted responsibility for the attack.
In response Israel struck Hamas and Jihad positions from the air.
Hamas in turn announced that if assassinations resume then they will start launching rockets at major cities in Israel.
The threat is real and escalation seems very possible.
