Gaza Update (2)

A convoy of about 100 military vehicles heading to Gaza to remove settlers has been held up by a group of 50 protesters blocking the road. At present, the police are busy dragging the protesters from the pavement.

Meanwhile, several hundred settlers and activists are still barricaded inside the synagogue at the large settlement of Neve Dekalim. The Israeli Defense Force says that it is confident that Neve Dekalim can be emptied in as little as 24 hours.

Unfortunately, I have to abandon my coverage for the night in order to be rested for work in the morning. Unless I can't sleep or wake up in the middle of the night, you can expect another update when I wake up (sometime between 6:00 and 7:30 AM Mountain Daylight Time). If you want live play-by play between now and then, I would suggest you visit an Israeli news outlet such as Haaretz or the Jerusalem Post.

Good night, pleasant dreams, and please pray for the settlers in Gaza.
