Sometimes we forget that war is always going. Media doesn’t really cover it so I guess it’s not a war, even though Israel is constantly trying to bomb Syria.
I don’t even know if I would sensationalize this as an escalation. This is happening all the time. Israel bombs its neighbors with pretty much no provocation. Basically at this point not even news for it to do that. Israel bombing someone is like gunshots fired in Chicago. I feel like even that gets more coverage.
