For the first time since 2014, terrorists from Gaza fired rockets into Tel Aviv on Thursday evening — long considered by Israel as the “red line” for rocket fire. The attack came just as a peace agreement between Israel and Hamas was nearing completion.

  • The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) released information that they have uncovered another Hezbollah terror cell on Syria’s border with Israel in the Golan Heights.
  • Meanwhile, new satellite images taken by an Israeli intelligence firm on Wednesday have caught Iran building yet another missile site in Syria, capable of targeting Israel.
  • International Women’s Day was celebrated this month by Israelis and Palestinians who had radically different messages.
  • Israel celebrated the 140th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s birthday on Thursday, remembering him as a devoted Jew and pioneer of modern science. He was also a founding member of Jerusalem’s Hebrew University.
