The Times of Israel is liveblogging events as they unfold through Monday, the 21st day of Operation Protective Edge. Four Israelis were reported killed and several more injured after a mortar round landed near a community outside Gaza, as fighting picked up Monday after a brief Eid al-Fitr holiday respite. Gazans reported several killed in a strike near Gazas largest hospital, but the IDF said a Hamas or other Islamist groups rocket misfire was responsible.

Can’t help wondering if Israel is approaching an existential moment. I think Israel is going to have to get medieval with somebody to demonstrate its resolve.
They are getting very close to that time.
They’ve fired hundeds of Iron Dome rockets, and their stock is running low. At a certain point they will need to do what the Allies did to stop the V-1 and V-2 rocket attacks - over-run the launch sites and factories. I don’t think that they are more than a week from such a decision point.
