UPDATED 6:25 PM EDT (SEE BOTTOM) -- Over the past 24 hours, the unstable situation in eastern Ukraine has gotten demonstrably worse. A high ranking leader of break-away province Donets'k, Alexander Zakharchenko, was assassinated via Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detonated in a cafe where he was eating breakfast.
Officials in Donets'k are blaming the Ukraine federal government in Kiev; so are neighboring Russians.
The Speaker of Russia's Duma said today, "The Minsk Agreements (which tried to bring peace to the area) are (now) pointless." Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his personal condolences over the death of Zakharchenko, and Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) stated ominously "Kiev has now chosen the way of bloody conflict."
As this story is published, armed forces are on the move and things appear to be SEVERELY escalating.
Reports from the Gaza Strip this morning are indicating ALL leaders of various factions there "have gone into hiding."
Fridays are usually a big day for protests and such in Gaza, but when faction leaders go into hiding, it is _usually_ an indication they know something is about to take place which will cause the Israeli military to commence retaliation.
