I hope they're wrong Defence Minister Ben-Eliezer says that a new wave of Jihad bombings is on the way (details). Analyst Zeev Schiff says that violence is re-escalating, and that Palestinian attacks on Israeli civilians will result in more IDF targeted killings of terrorist leaders and an eventual rehash of Operation Defensive Wall.

This AM there was a bombing of a diesel fuel truck at a gas depot near Herzliya. Noone was hurt and the fire was quickly extinguished, but the attack brought renewed calls to move the facility away from a populated area (details).

Update: the Pi Glilot fuel depot has now been closed
