Darkness at Noon

A huge Hamsin blew into all of Israel today, covering most of the country in a brownish-yellow haze of Saharan dust. Temperatures rose into the 90s and 100s around the country, with relief expected sometime this evening with falling temperatures. The dust storm made for a dark, hot icky day best spent indoors.

Update: Under cover of the Hamsin's haze terrorists from Gaza tried to penetrate Israel but were stopped by the IDF.
