Det skytes nå raketter fra Libanon mot Israel. Ifølge libanesiske kilder kommer rakettene fra en palestinsk leir. Det kan bety at Hizbollah ikke står bak, men potensialet for en dramatisk eskalering er der.

Snart uten strøm
Hamas setter i gang krig mot naboen i nord, og er helt avhengig av Israel for å drive generatorene. Det er en helt syk situasjon, og ingen normal myndighet ville gå til krig i en slik situasjon.
The Gaza Strip will run out of fuel for its electricity generators by Sunday, an Israeli defense official tells reporters.
According to the official, who is speaking on condition of anonymity, Gaza is down to having just five hours of electricity per day, after having 16 hours per day on average before the fighting.
Some of this is due to Israel shutting down the Kerem Shalom Crossing, which is normally used to send fuel into Gaza, and some of this is because rockets fired by terrorists in the enclave struck some of the power lines into the Strip near the city of Rafah.
According to the official, three of the four turbines that normally run in Hamas’s power plant are currently out of service as a result of the fuel shortage.
Gaza’s water supply has also been affected by the power cuts, limiting the amount of running water in the Strip to once every two days, the official says.
