We've had over 800 missiles fired on southern Israel since the beginning of the year. The range of those missiles has been getting longer.
We've had over 120 just this past week and what that means in practice is that one seventh of Israel's population, a million Israelis, have to live within 15 or 20 seconds of bomb shelters, the kids can't go to schools.
In that situation, I think any country would feel the need to respond and try to ensure some peace and quiet.
Today's bombing in Tel Aviv is reminiscent of six years ago and could mark a serious escalation in the conflict.
A truce in Gaza suits all sides but none of the groups seem interested in a long-lasting solution.
A complex system of air defences has been instrumental in protecting Israel's population from incoming rockets.
