Israeli #authorities removed restrictions on #Gaza -area communities on #Sunday morning, allowing #Israeli citizens to gather in public, stray farther than sprinting distance from bomb shelters and work their agricultural fields, due to a ceasefire put in place between #Israel and #Hamas .
Following a barrage of almost 200 #rockets fired into Israel from Gaza on Saturday, Israel launched a series of powerful reprisals, striking dozens of #terror targets and leveling a Hamas urban combat training facility situated over a massive underground terror and black market smuggling tunnel. Israel announced that the counter-strikes represent the largest anti-terror campaign in Gaza since “Operation Protective Edge” in 2014.
Rocket #attacks against Israeli population centers near the Gaza border began at 1:30 a.m. on Saturday. More than 100 of the rockets and mortar shells fired from Gaza landed in open fields, and 30 of them were intercepted by the Iron Dome #missile -defense system.
Three Israelis were wounded and several were treated for shock when a #home and a #synagogue in the town of #Sderot suffered direct hits. Additional rockets fell in some communities, causing some #damage to buildings and infrastructure. Read more at #sephardic .org, link in bio!

I had the opportunity to do an extensive interview with Royce White (@last.renaissance.man), he opened up about a myriad of different topics... Part 1: Eight years after leaving the University of Minnesota, one of most talked players about is still Royce White. Many make assumptions about what happened, but few know the truth about his story at the U. Hear what happened from Royce himself, how Tubby Smith was involved, and how he ended up having a breakout year at Iowa State playing for Fred Hoiberg.
Part 2: Royce White has been deemed a “head case” by many and many have marginalized his anxiety as simply not being able to fly. It is far more complex than that, as is the issues with the NBA. Royce talks very opening and passionately about his experience in the NBA, his friend Tyler Honeycutt that lost his life far too soon, what needs to be done, and what we can do about this mental health epidemic.
