From Alex Kane at Mondoweiss:
“The immediate cause of the latest round of fighting in the Gaza Strip, which featured rockets and mortars fired into Israel and air attacks on the coastal enclave, occurred over the last two days. But the roots of the latest fighting are Israeli violations of the November 2012 truce between Hamas and Israel, and the years-long blockade and occupation crippling the Gaza Strip.”

Turkey has already responded with shelling against targets inside Syria. This threatens opening up a second front in Syria’s civil war, escalating it into a regional conflict. Both sides claim that they want no wider war, but will “defend its territory,” which in the end will look increasingly like a war.
