On the Mideast front, more shells land in Israel’s south, shattering a truce. The Algemeiner speaks with the IDF on the impact of the Iron Dome missile defense system, while the JPost reports Al-Qaida is seeking revenge for Israel’s targeting of its operatives in Gaza. In Israeli domestic issues, PM Netanyahu’s Likud and Yisrael Beytenu form a major right-wing alliance to run in January elections, while a Reform leader in Israel joins Labor.
