Upsurge in violence ahead

Hamas is launching violent attacks against Israel.

Four family members, including a toddler, were injured when a Qassam rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit their home in Kibbutz Karmiya, in the western Negev, on Friday afternoon.

and

Hezbollah forces attacked an Israel Defense Forces post on the Lebanese border on Friday, two days after troops shot dead a Lebanese shepherd in the area.

One IDF soldier was lightly injured in the attack.

I think it is no coincidence that these acts of violence are occurring with the issue of Iran now reaching yet another, critical point. Violence is a signal being sent to Israel and the West.  Diplomatic pressure on Iran will prompt a violent response. Expect more attacks in Iraq next.
