#1 President Sisi ought to be very seriously displeased at how blatantly they are disrespecting his hudna mediation efforts. But thus far he has not officially deigned to take notice.

According to the Times of Israel’s liveblog, it’s up to 200 rockets from Gaza now, and Israel hit 70 targets, including an Islamic Jihad tunnel that crossed the border. Something explosive was clearly stored in it — there’s a brief but dramatic video at the link, though it lacks the musical background of the Islamic Jihad video showing loading of missiles into a launcher. Also, some Army reserves are to be called up this evening.

#2 According to the Jerusalem Post, notice has been taken:

The Islamic Jihad leader Baha Abu al-Ata was invited to Cairo and immediately left Gaza through the Rafah border crossing. Israel has threatened to kill Abu al-Ata more than once, since he is responsible for the launching of many rockets into Israeli territory.

I’m setting this as today’s headline, though really such explosive cross-border activity has become almost a normal variation on the regular routine.
