Fighting Resumes In Gaza

Surprising no one...


As a 72-hour truce in Gaza expired at 8 a.m. Friday, Palestinian militants fired barrages of rockets into Israel and the Israeli military responded with airstrikes, one of which killed a 10-year-old boy, according to relatives.

The renewed hostilities interrupted the indirect talks in Cairo, brokered by Egypt and backed by the United States, for a more durable cease-fire agreement. While the rocket fire signaled Hamas's refusal to extend the temporary lull and its desire to apply pressure for its demands to be met at the talks, the Israeli government said in a statement that "Israel will not hold negotiations under fire."

  1. Israel really needs to develop mortars that release swarms of tiny, remote-controlled suicide drones that can detonate with a small shaped downward blast (like, a six foot radius or so). You fire them where the rockets originate, but from that point you just paint the actual attackers with a target and the AI takes them out without hurting any noncombatants that they aren’t literally standing on.

    I mean, if anyone can invent that sort of thing, it’s the guys that developed the Iron Dome, and they would probably get more mileage out of it as well.
