The beautiful Flame Tree, which is prevalent in Israel.
Today there have numerous rockets shot into Israel from Gaza. Sirens have been sounding in the towns close to the border. Three soldiers have been hurt there. The other day, and Israeli soldier was killed in Ramallah.
Also today, a rocket landed in a kindergarten, but fortunately it was before children had started arriving.
It seems that things are heating up here once again. There have been quite a few planes flying over our home, as we are on the flight path of one of the Air Force bases.
As I am writing this, 70+ rockets have been shot into Israel. Many of them come from so close to the border that there is not time to shoot them down with the Iron Dome. In these areas, residents are being told to stay within 15 seconds of a bomb shelter! No rockets have fallen in our city as of yet. They are reporting that things are escalating, so it will be interesting to see if the night is quiet or not!
