Israel bombing Gaza

Per Al Jazeera, "Israel has bombed several targets in the Gaza Strip, witnesses say, hours after the Israeli government vowed a 'disproportionate response' to rocket fire from the Palestinian territory."

Tweets are streaming in from the region, including word of a fresh strike from Gaza into Israel.
