An alarm sounded Thursday evening in the city of Tel Aviv. Gush-Dan area residents reported hearing a very loud explosion. The Islamic Jihad issued a statement claiming that it fired a Fajr-5 missile toward Tel Aviv. The missile has not yet been discovered and there’s no known damage.

The missile that was fired earluer on Rishon L’Tzion, to the south of Tel Aviv, fell in an open area causing no damage. The Hamas claimed responsibility for it.

The first Fajr-5 rockets an Iranian development of the Chinese WS-1 MLRS that was exported to Iran in the late 1980s. In 2006, Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organization (AIO) announced it had developed an upgraded version of the Fajr-5 333 mm (4-round) unguided surface-to-surface artillery rocket system.

During the 2006 Lebanon War, Hezbollah fired Fajr-5 rockets deeper into Israeli space than any previous time. It is believed that those “Khaibar-1″ rockets, as Hezbollah called them, were an enhanced version of the Iranian-made Fajr-5 rockets.

Reshet Bet has released their latest election poll…

Moshe Kachlon (L) and Avigdor Liberman (R)

Liberman and Kachlon may merge right after elections – and the larger party will recommend Liberman for Prime Minister to the President.

Eli Yishai, member of the Shas party today, but tomorrow is another day.

25-year-old man threatened former Shas party head with violence.

Feiglin - Ani Yehudi

Feiglin decided he and the Likud party are better off if he fights on only one front, not two or three.

I’m sorry, but Naftali Bennett decided to dress up as an aging Tel Aviv Hipster and… apologize…

Shas takes a hit in the latest poll, and the coalition possibilities shift a bit with the changing numbers.

Yishai was whisked to a safe room by Knesset bodyguards after Deri’s supporters tried to attack him.

“Leftists don’t care about Arabs, settlers are the true Jews. Leftists warned me I will be the first in the gas chambers.”

The latest Knesset poll has Labor down a bit, and Likud moving up again.

Meretz wants to make sure that Eli Yishai will not be in the next Knesset.

Moshe Kahlon courts Michael Oren but rejects Rami Levi. Shas and Jewish Home divorces not yet final.

It appears that former Shas MK Eli Yishai is taking that next big step.

Livni’s unrepeatable gutter language shocked even the Left-wing panel members. “Is she on drugs?” asks Likud Minister Yisrael Katz.

The addition of the secular Dayan is another sign pointing to national religious Uri Ariel’s joining Haredi Eli Yishai.
