Earlier, mortar shells were fired into Israeli territory in apparent spillover from Syria war.11:05 13.10.15 | 0 comments
A Peace Now poll has indicated an increase of Israelis who consider themselves right-winged politically, agree to a two-state resolution to resolve the conflict with the Palestinians, and withdraw from some settlements in the West Bank. One can't guage always successfully the ongoings in a nation when a number of factors contribute to its civil unrest - but economics and lack of freedoms/opportunities, are usually the reasons for internal strife. A number of months ago, former defense minister Ehud Barak stated that Syrian President Assad was months away from his demise - never happened. So that's also an inaccurate assessment of events. But then Egypt's President Morsi breaks diplomatic ties with Syria. That also was not predicted. Perhaps it's much easier to focus on those external conflicts, rather than the internal Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
