The Israel Air Force (IAF) is investigating how two Grad rockets from Lebanon managed to get through the Iron Dome defense system and hit two communities in Israel.

Initial reports said that Iron Dome intercepted one rocket, two of the rockets fell in open areas, and one landed in one the sea. It was reported that it was a fragment of an Iron Dome rocket that landed in a residential area.

It now turns out that two of the rockets that were thought to have landed in open areas both hit communities in the western Galilee.

One rocket hit Kibbutz Gesher HaZiv and the other rocket hit Moshav Shaei Zion.

One of the rockets hit the kitchen of a retirement home for Holocaust survivors in Moshav Shavei Zion.

No one was injured as the residents had gone to the bomb shelter as soon as the siren went off.

  1. TomTuna says:

    Solid proof of point of origin … in-kind use of retaliatory force, regardless of locale. If the terrorists have hidden in an inhabited area, so be it. Perhaps the citizenry will get proactive and resist being used as shields.

  2. Wars and rumors of wars are raging all over the world today just as the Bible stated that they would in the end times. Now we have trouble in Turkey, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Lebanon, N. Korea, Libya, and on and on the list goes! Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria has allegedly used Chemical and Bio weapons against his own people and has threatened to use them against other nations in the past. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.
