This morning, more than 60,000 Israeli students will not go to school. Instead, they will stay at home due to the renewed violence between Israel and the Gaza strip.
Last night the Israeli military struck Islamic Jihad targets in Gaza and Syria in response to rocket attacks on southern Israel. One of those rockets struck the yard of a house in the city of Sderot, near the Gaza strip.
Our thoughts are with the residents of the Gaza border region who deserve to live in peace and security.
Firing indiscriminately into a civilian population is unacceptable and should be wholeheartedly condemned.
Without a political agreement, the violence on the Gaza border will continue, with people on both sides living in a constant state of fear.
