It’s beginning to look like it will be another hot summer in Israel.

There was a bus explosion near Jerusalem earlier today. At first there was confusion as to whether it was a bomb or some technical failure. Police have just confirmed that it was a small bomb, though it remains unclear as of this writing if it was planted or a suicide bombing.

We will add more as details become available. Carl in Jerusalem has a live blog updating information.

In the south, along the Gaza border, a massive Hamas tunnel system into Israel was discovered.

This all is reminiscent of the run up to war in the late Spring of 2014. It started with a Hamas kidnapping of three Israeli teens, and then a relentless Hamas rocket barrage.
