Another senior official pointed out that UNRWA has a history of letting Hamas use its facilities for its terrorist activities. “Time and again, over the years, UNRWA has been abused by gunmen from different terrorist factions who are using UN facilities to stockpile weapons, to fire rockets from, to steal UNRWA humanitarian equipment and to cause damage and fire in UNRWA’s hangars,” a senior Foreign Ministry official told The Times of Israel.
Infantry, Armored Corps, Engineering Corps, artillery and intelligence units are taking over various areas in Gaza, and are all working with one another and the air force. They are operating in central, and southern Gaza, where Hamas has dug an extensive terrorist tunnel network. The IDF’s Southern Command is overseeing the ground offensive.
This time the family was on the way to school. A LADY in the lane to the right decided she didn't want to stop at a yellow light so she'd change lanes left without looking to go around a truck to keep going through the yellow light. Only she didn't look and just plowed into the side of our van. The damage doesn't look THAT bad but it is bent up some.

That's pretty much it for now, most of the usual shows discussed here won't start back up until late September/October. If you're looking for something new to watch, try these (all rated at least 8/10 on IMDB if that makes a difference to anyone):
Banshee - Cinemax show about a guy pretending to be the sheriff of a small town. Holy jebus is this good. Warning, show gets plenty violent.
Black Sails - Starz show about pirates!
Da Vinci's Demons - Starz show about Da Vinci during his younger years.
Hannibal - NBC show about Hannibal Lecter. Been meaning to watch this for awhile now, I've heard great things
Halt and Catch Fire - AMC show about a fictional take on how the personal computer was realized. Sounds boring but the characters really draw you in.
Last Week Tonight - HBO show with John Oliver. The format is similar to Daily Show but it's much much better as he only focuses on 1 major topic and 2-3 minor ones allowing for more thoughtful commentary/analysis. Every episode so far has been amazing.
Penny Dreadful - Showtime show about the supernatural. Reminds me kind of of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Rectify - SundanceTV show about a guy who gets released from death row on a technicality
Silicon Valley - HBO show about guys starting their own start-up. Funny.
The Americans - FX show about Russian spies in the US during the cold war era.
Turn - AMC show about spies during the American Revolution
Tyrant - FX show a about a guy living with his family in exile in the US, returns home where his ruling family preside over a war-torn middle eastern country. Never seen anything quite like it. Great show.
Vikings - Show about Vikings. Go Ragnar!
Continuum - Showcase show about time travel
Dominion - Takes place 25 years after the movie Legion. Pretty good so far.
Helix - Good sci-fi show about virus taking over a science facility in the Arctic
The 100 - Seems a little ridiculous but I can't stop watching it.
The Last Ship - Good action show about an epidemic that is wiping out the entire world.
Upcoming new shows that I think show promise:
The Strain - FX show by Guillermo del Toro starting tonight
The Knick - Cinemax show by Steven Soderbergh, starts Aug 8
Legends - TNT show about an undercover FBI guy, starts Aug 13
