On a single day in July, when ambient tensions escalated, Palestinian militants fired more than 180 rockets into Israel, and the Israelis launched airstrikes against towns throughout the Gaza Strip.

These two separate and wildly different events still have a strong presence in this city, now the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
