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.
