Was in Ashkelon yesterday: found shelter from an incoming rocket within the alloted 15-20 seconds and saw the Iron Dome system at work (my shelter wasn't that secure...) No buses were running due south, the military had blocked off certain roads as well.

Coverage of two protests held on Nov. 11. One was to call on Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid to declare his intended coalition allegiances. The other was a march against, what has allegedly amounted to, NIS 27 billion in preferential tax exemptions for some of Israel's largest corporations.
