Netanyahu to skip AIPAC amid rocket barrage - report

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to return to Israel early Tuesday morning and skip his scheduled speech at the AIPAC conference in Washington DC, Walla news reported. The rocket attacks from Gaza, culminating in the destruction of a family home in Kfar Saba have prompted serious reprisals from the Israel Defense Force.
The annual conference is a highlight for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Prime Minister's speech was highly anticipated. Netanyahu held emergency talks with the IDF chief of staff and other defense officials from his hotel room in the United States capital.
