Two rockets slammed into Eilat at 9:00 AM Wednesday morning. One rocket hit the yard of a house, the second hit in an open area. One person was treated for shock. It’s not yet know where the rocket was launched from. Two more rockets hit Aqaba, Jordan (next to Eilat).

Israel is talking with the Jordanians, to try to identify the landing sites, to help determine the launch site. It is suspected that the launch came from the Sinai.

It is also suspected that Global Jihad, and not Hamas is behind this attack.

Israel has temporarily closed the Eilat airport to incoming and departing flights. Eilat’s civilian airspace is closed until further notice.

The Mayor of Eilat announced that all school children are currently in bomb shelters. The Eilat municipality is debating whether to send the children home, or keep them in the school’s bomb shelters.

The air-raid siren went off in Eilat, in time for the attack.

There is also an Iron Dome stationed near Eilat. The Iron Dome anti-rocket system has been there for approximately a month, but it did not shoot down these rockets. Israel is trying to determine why the system didn’t activate.

  1. Tensions on the Korean Peninsula and in Gaza are once again on the rise. Month by month, and week by week the middle east spins more out of control. 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 looks like he may be willing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well. 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.

  2. I am sure that Israel can tell where these rockets came from. I think that for every rocket that is fired towards Israel, the government of Israel should fire four rockets back. It is time to stop an eye for an eye. Israel has to have four eyes to be returned once and for all.
