Rocket Launch from Gaza Sets Off Warning Sirens

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Terrorists from Gaza launched another rocket towards Ashkelon Thursday night, setting off early warning sirens, but the missile missed its mark and may have exploded in northern Gaza.

Shortly before, Reuters quoted an Israeli military official as saying, “We won’t go back to a situation where three or four times a week the red alarm sounds in southern Israeli towns.”

Terrorists in Gaza, not necessarily from Hamas, are apparently ready to goad Israel and see how far can push the government with its “rocket roulette” attacks that usually cause no injuries or damage but sometimes explode at homes and schools.

If the stage  massive counter terrorist operation, it will be accused of “disproportionate” force and will face wholesale condemnations in the United Nations.

If it does not retaliate, it could be too late for the victims of a missile that finds its target.

PA Arab Caught with Perfectly Forged Israeli ID

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Police patrolling the Ashkelon Beach region arrested a Palestinian Authority Arab with a perfectly forged Israeli ID card (Teudat Zehut), according to the Ashkelon Beach Regional spokesperson, Diti Horvitz-Arad.

On Sunday, police were on regular patrol, looking for Palestinian Authority Arabs who had infiltrated without proper permits.

Two weeks ago, off-duty soldier Tomer Hazan was killed by a Palestinian Authority Arab who did not have proper entry or work permits. His employer in Bat Yam claimed the killer had proper documentation.

Police came across 3 Arab workers in the village of Nitzan who they proceeded to question.

Two of them pulled out their Palestinian Authority IDs, but without entry or work permits. The third accidentally pulled out two IDs, which he then tried to hide.

Police were surprised to discover that the third man had two IDs, and a further check led them to discover that the Israeli ID was a perfect forgery.

If he hadn’t pulled out both IDs at the same time, police would have thought he was a proper Israeli citizen, based on a visual scan of his ID card.

All three Arabs were arrested.
