On April 5th, the eve of Passover, Israel faced the most significant barrage of rocket attacks from Lebanon, 34, since the 2006 Lebanon War. On top of that, 6 rockets were fired from Syria, with 2 crossing the border into Israel. In addition to that, with the holidays of Ramadan and Passover coinciding, violent clashes have taken place from the Al Aqsa Mosque, and rockets have been fired by Hamas from Gaza into southern Israel. On top of that, Israel has now faced a renewed wave of terrorist attacks on its civilians, resulting in the death of an Italian tourist, Alessandro Parini (34), and 3 members of one family, Lucy Dee, age 45, and her two daughters, Rina, (20) and Maia, (15).
