Additional Iron Dome Battery Deployed

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

An additional Iron Dome anti-missile system was deployed Monday evening, the third such installation to be completed in the past seven days.

Israel currently deploys nine Iron Dome batteries to protect its civilians and soldiers from missile and rocket fire launched by Hamas and other terrorists on its borders.

In the past week, missiles were fired at Israel from Lebanon, Syria and Gaza. Millions of Israelis raced for shelter under the constant rocket fire aimed from the borders.

The Iron Dome has saved millions of lives and homes but Israel’s economy is taking a battering: each interceptor missile fired to defend a city costs $50,000. Each battery installed to launch those interceptors costs hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Missile Fire Strikes Golan Heights

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Hamas terrorists fired a fresh barrage of missiles late Monday afternoon while an attack from Syria hit the Golan Heights.

The attacks began with a barrage fired at metropolitan Tel Aviv in the central Dan region, followed five minutes later by another at metro Be’er Sheva in the Negev. Barely a minute later, missile fire from Syria was aimed at the Ramat HaGolan.

Hundreds of thousands of residents went racing for shelter in the suburbs of Ramat Gan, Bnei Brak, Givat Shmuel, Petach Tikvah, Givatayim, and as far north as the city of Herzliya.

At least four missiles landed in open areas in the Gush Dan region, where the ‘city that never sleeps’ is located – but no specific location has yet been released.

One of the missiles was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system, indicating it was headed directly for a populated area.

Barely five minutes later, Arab, Druze and Jewish residents of Israel’s Negev region were running for shelter.

The sound of the Color Red incoming rocket alert siren sent Druze residents of the village of Majdal Shams racing for cover, while their neighbors just a few kilometers down the road did the same in Jewish communities around the Golan Heights.

At least one rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system over Be’er Sheva, and two others exploded in open areas on the outside of the city.

In the Golan Heights, at least one missile exploded in an open area near a kibbutz. No one was physically injured, but a fire broke out in the field.

Hamas has claimed responsibility for the attacks in the metro Tel Aviv area, but at present it appears the missile fire aimed at the Golan Heights emanated from across the northern border in Syria. As with the missile fire originating from Lebanon, the attack raises the spectre of an additional front in the current conflict.

IDF Shoots Down Gazan Drone over Ashdod

Monday, July 14th, 2014

At 6:34am, we reported a rocket siren over Ashdod.

It’s now been discovered that what the IDF shot down was not a rocket, but an unmanned drone launched from Gaza.

While we don’t yet know the capabilities and range of the drone, it does represent an escalation of Gaza’s capabilities and attempts to attack Israel.

The drone was shot down by a Patriot missile. This was the first time a Patriot has been launched at a target in Israel in 20 years.

Israel’s Secret Weapon!‏

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

Too many people judge Israel’s guilt or innocence according to the amount of wounded and dead we have in these “military conflicts.” As a daily blogger I have complained (on Facebook) about how hard it is to get “good pictures” of damage and injury in Israel of Israelis. The Arabs are just so photogenic and love to shove blood and gore into the camera.

International media just love to show the suffering Arabs, while all we have to show is a burning field and scratched up car, broken windows, toys, some fallen shrapnel and the trail of the Iron Dome taking out the missiles before they can land. Thank G-d, yes, thank G-d for the fact that not more Israelis have been injured and killed. And thank G-d for those “timings” when the camp or the nursery school or the stores or the kitchen was hit and destroyed just as the children or family weren’t there.

Israel has a secret weapon:

G-d Almighty!

Yes, the One True G-d loves us, despite our flaws and sins and foolishness and awful politicians and disloyal doubting media.

Personally, I think that the name the Israeli PR hasbara staff gave our retaliation to the potentially deadly rockets the Gazan Arab terrorists are constantly bombarding us with, Operation Protective Edge, is limp at best and the so-called “war aim” to just return to a status quo ceasefire is a dangerous mistake. We’ve been through this too many times before, and it just gives the Arab terrorists time to further perfect their weapons. Then they always start aiming and launching at us again. And each time their reach is further. Now almost the entire country can be targeted and damaged and potentially, innocent Israelis could be murdered or injured, G-d forbid. How long will G-d protect us and swerve the rockets to save us?

Since G-d is our only true ally, let’s stop checking for United States or United Nations approval and destroy the entire terrorist missile network and infrastructure. There is nobody to please other than G-d, so let’s just do it!!
