Problems in Gaza
After an uneasy ceasefire there's a danger that the war will restart. According to the BBC, an attack on an Israeli patrol force, which left one soldier dead, was followed by air attacks and a tank incursion. One Palestinian was apparently killed in the original incident. See http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7852745.stm and http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7853803.stm for more information. A resumption of open hostilities would be terrible for both Gaza and Israel, let us hope the ceasefire holds.
