The Israel Air Force (IAF) and General Security Services (Shabak) are on high state of alert ahead of former Prime Minister Sharon’s funeral, according to a report in Maariv.

Ariel Sharon is to be buried Monday in his Negev “Sycamore Ranch” (“Havat Shikmim”), which is within range of Gaza’s rockets.

There is concern within the security forces that the Gazans might decide to shoot rockets at the funeral, and so, have launched “Operation Kalaniot” to try to prevent any rockets from being launched and hitting the ranch during the funeral.

An Iron Dome anti-rocket system will also be deployed to protect the funeral.

In 2007, a rocket from Gaza hit and exploded on the ranch.

After Sharon pulled Israel out of the Gaza Strip, Gaza became a terror base that has put millions of Israelis within rocket range of Gaza’s terrorists, and semi-regularly requires that residents of Israel’s south go into bomb shelters and reinforced sewer pipes so as to not get injured or killed from falling rockets.

Israel’s security has significantly diminished since the 2005 expulsion of Jews from their homes in Gush Katif and Gaza.

US Secretary of State John Kerry is pushing current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to make even deeper expulsions and pullouts from additional Israeli territories.

    Maybe if John Kerry was required to live in the Negev for a while and dodge the Gazan rockets, he'd be in more of a position to suggest to the Israelis what they need to do for peace. It appears he is speaking from a positon of inexperience.

  2. The Lion of Judea has gone to rest. The time of the gentiles has come to an end.

  3. Amen to what Robert Daren said.

  4. Ezra Adler says:

    The most beautiful pair of souls. A perfect match.

  5. THIS SHOWS THE FAILURE OF THIS GREAT MAN'S GESTURE OF PULLING OUT OF GAZA. HE SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO THA ADVICE GIVEN TO HIM BY CHABAD REBBE.,NO LAND FOR PEACE. ISRAEL'S SECURITY IS PARAMOUNT .

  6. James Johnston Ferguson says:

    well said Robert Daren !
    R.I.P. Ariel Sharon " YIsrael say's good bye to a great leader " Shalom.

  7. Run Guo says:

    Why does not Kerry tell Israel just go and commit suicide, giving up Gaza is a ready proven a deadly mistake, truly Judas is coming back with another kiss, till Israel fallen in his love. G-D blesses Sharon.
