A few months ago, said that in Kabul, the distance between joy and grief can be as thin as a tissue. I kept thinking about that today as we sat with a family whose two kids, 7 and 10, were killed in a bombing on their way to school yesterday.

The ongoing operation in Gaza has not resulted in the death of even a single Hamas member thus far. Those killed are overwhelmingly PIJ militants. Targets hit are also linked to PIJ. The ongoing operation serves Israeli & Hamas interests by weakening Hamas' unruly challenger.
