Robotic warfare may be closer than many think. According to Israeli Minister Ayoob Kara, assassin robots could be a part of Jerusalem's arsenal in "two or three" years.
This morning another rocket was fired into Israel. It is the eighth missile shot at the Jewish State in thirty days. While collective damage has been negligible, the uptick signals a resurgence of hostilities, mostly by ISIS in the Sinai and its allies in Gaza.
In Australia, Netanyahu strengthens economic ties, and invites Australia's PM to visit, "to hike in the Golan Heights." And "by the way," he adds, "the Golan will never go back to Syria; it will always be a part of the State of Israel."
ISIS is not only to Israel's north, in Syria, and east, in Iraq; it is also just across the border to the south. In fact, the terror group has taken over a large swath of the Sinai peninsula. From its stronghold there, it launched four rockets into Israel last night. But this is not the only military activity that occurred during the evening. There were two more.
Knowing that the government in Gaza is sworn to Israel's destruction, Jerusalem has decided that recent calm justifies an increase in humanitarian aid for Palestinian civilians there. Before the war with Hamas in 2014, about 300 truckloads of materiel went into Gaza every day. Today some 1,000 truckloads make their way to Palestinians there.
