After the way last year’s Gaza war sparked violence between Arabs and Jews in so-called “mixed cities” throughout Israel, the security establishment is on high alert in hopes that today’s Gaza operation will not spark similar scenes within Israel.

Thus far, streets throughout the country have been largely quiet. A small protest took place in Haifa of residents expressing solidarity with those under fire in Gaza, but it was controlled and was the only such demonstration known to have taken place.
