The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted one of two missiles fired at the Tel Aviv area.
The missiles fired on Sunday morning, the fifth day of what the Israeli military has dubbed Operation Pillar of Defense, mark at least four missiles fired from Gaza at one of Israel's major population centers.
Social media changes the zeitgeist in ways we couldn't have imagined. As we saw with the recent presidential election, opinions and attacks now travel at the speed of light. And so it should be no surprise that the ongoing Middle East conflict in Gaza between the Palestinians and Israelis has escalated into a Cyber war.
The head of Hamas' military wing in the Gaza Strip, Ahmed Jabri, was killed by an Israeli missile.
Jabri and a passenger were killed late Wednesday afternoon when the car in which they were driving in Gaza was hit in what Israeli military officials called a "surgical strike." The passenger was Jabri's son, according to Yediot Achronot, though it was not confirmed by other sources.

(JNS.org) — Gaza terrorists fired a Qassam rocket toward Israel on Tuesday after having fired more than 55 rockets and mortar shells into Israel the previous day. The rocket exploded inside Palestinian territory near the border fence, causing no injuries or damage, Israel Hayom reported.
Ever since the tragic death more than nine years ago of Rachel Corrie, the 23-year-old American woman who had come to Gaza to support the Palestinian cause, harsh critics of Israel have insisted that the driver of the Israel Defense Forces bulldozer that crushed her acted deliberately. This week’s ruling in Haifa that the death was accidental will do nothing to change that point of view, though the facts suggest otherwise.
A yeshiva rebbe in Bnei Brak, the largest haredi city in Israel, has come up with a great plan for making army duty more equitable in the Jewish state.
Well, make that half a great plan and half a potential disaster.
Rabbi Simcha Avraham Halevi says that for the sake of fairness, with the government pushing to end army exemptions for haredi young men who are full-time yeshiva students, all secular young Israelis should be required to study Torah.
