For those of you who follow Middle East news know that there has been some added tension the last several days. A lot of rioting has taken place in nearby neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, and also in and around the Old City. Hamas is calling it a "day of rage".
Something that often happens when something is going on is we hear a lot of helicopters. This morning was no exception. I was starting to think Israel had 500 helicopters flying around today. But when I went to pick up Joni from school, I realized it was mostly the same one or two flying around in circles, most likely monitoring the rioting activity. I snapped a picture of one while it was making its fifth circle in less than ten minutes. Round and round she goes.
