Mayhem in the Middle East

The Middle East

Israelis and Palestinians have been fighting in Gaza for almost two weeks now over who has the right to live where.

This week, at least three rockets have been fired into Israel from Lebanon, a country north of Israel, making Israeli troops respond with their own attack on that country.

This latest attack comes as officials are pushing for a peace plan in the Middle East.

Attacks on Israel from Gaza have been linked to Hamas, which controls that area. But it’s not clear who is firing the rockets from Lebanon.

Israeli officials have closed all schools in the northern part of the country and residents have been warned to stay indoors at home.

    I'm getting into space-based science fiction and I've come across some really great reads. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations from this genre. (Don't recommend Ender's Game; I've already read it and am into the series).
