Israeli Defense Forces live-tweeting fighting in Gaza Strip

Plumes of smoke rise over Gaza during an Israeli air strike, as seen from Sderot on Nov. 15, 2012 in Israel.

This final note today, which perhaps you've heard about, but that I want to mark here because it's really quite remarkable.

As you've seen and heard elsewhere, there's fresh fighting between the Israelis and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Rocket attacks, airstrikes, fears of an Israeli ground offensive -- serious stuff.

Much of which has been live tweeted by the Israeli Defense Forces. Check it out yourself: @IDFspokesperson.
