Air Raid Drill Sirens Sound Nationwide

Monday, February 24th, 2014

As part of a nationwide drill, air raid sirens sounded at 10:05 AM all across Israel.

The purpose of the drill is to test and prepare the schools, teachers and students in case of a missile attack, such as from Iran, Gaza or the Palestinian Authority.

During the drill, students from nursery schools on up, went into bomb shelters.

At least some schools are testing out an Internet based “remote-learning” system, playing out scenarios where students or teachers are unable to physically make it to the school. As part of that test, classes are taught (or learned) remotely with one, some or all of the participants sitting at home. That part of the drill will take place at 3 PM this afternoon.

Parents were asked to talk to their children before going to school today, to prepare them so they wouldn’t be scared when the sirens went off.

Iron Dome Fell Short, Grads Hit Residential Areas

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

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.
