Despite the new ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, the violence continues. The fighting is supposed to stop at 9 p.m. in Israel and Palestine.
Earlier today, 22 people were wounded when a bomb exploded on a bus outside Israel's military headquarters in Tel Aviv. Hamas did not claim responsibility, but it praised the attack. As of now, 111 Palestinians have been killed since the conflict began, including 56 civilians. Three Israelis have been killed.
Israel has been able protect its civilian population with its Iron Dome missile defense system. This is the first major test of the system and it's getting high marks for its effectiveness.
