Rocket Alert up North

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

A rocket alert went off up north in the Rosh Hanikra/Nahariya/Western Galil region at 5:42 PM, following a rocket launch from Lebanon.

Three rockets landed in Israel in open areas near Nahariya, according to Channel 2. No injuries were reported.

There are reports that the IDF is responding with artillery fire.

After the child-killing Hezbollah terrorist Samir Kuntar was killed in an alleged Israeli air strike this morning, it was expected there would be some response.

Residents of the northern town of Shlomi have been told to stay near their bomb shelters.

Rocket Launched from Sinai (and Gaza) at Israel

Monday, October 12th, 2015

7:46 AM Channel 2 Israel TV reports that minutes ago there was a rocket attack on Israel, launched from the Sinai towards Kerem Shalom in Israel.

No known injuries or damage.

The rocket alert/Tzeva Adom dis not sound, presumably because the rocket fell short, and landed in the Sinai.

Around 8 AM, a rocekt was launched from Gaza towards Israel, but that also fell short, according to Israel radio.

Monday Morning Missile Explodes on Ashkelon Coast, No Alarm

Monday, September 21st, 2015

In the wee hours of Monday morning, at around 3 am, a Grad Katyusha missile was fired at southern Israel from Hamas-controlled Gaza, and landed in an open area in the Ashkelon coastal region.

No one was injured and no damage was reported — but no one was warned that the rocket was heading their way, either.

The Iron Dome anti-missile defense system did not fire, and there was no Color Red incoming rocket alert sounded, presumably because it was determined the rocket would land in an open area without people.

Security personnel who searched the area found missile had landed in an open area, near some greenhouses, in the Ashkelon coastal region.

Just three days ago, the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system was called into action to intercept a similar attack launched from Gaza by Palestinian Arab terrorists.

In that instance, the missile was heading straight for the city of Ashkelon, a heavily populated area. The Color Red incoming rocket alert siren wailed its warning from one end of the city to the other.

The missile was intercepted in mid-air and the threat was neutralized, while nearly 120,000 city residents waited safely in their bomb shelters.

 

Mortar Attack on Southern Israel, Code Red Alert Not Activated

Friday, August 7th, 2015

Jews living along the southern border of Israel were attacked by Palestinian Authority terrorists in Gaza late Friday afternoon but the Code Red incoming alert siren did not activate.

The residents were caught unawares when the shelling started.

One of the mortar shells landed in the Eshkol Regional Council district north of Kissufim, just east of Gaza, in an open field less than a kilometer (about half a mile) from the security fence.

Local officials reported no damage to property and no physical injuries to residents in the area.

At least one more projectile – either a Qassam rocket or another mortar shell – landed within Gaza territory, officials said.

Three rockets were fired at southern Israel by Gaza terrorists on Thursday night. All of them landed within Gaza, close to the security fence along Israel’s southern border, near the northern and central areas of the enclave.

As happened several days earlier as well, Code Red incoming rocket alert sirens were also not triggered by Thursday night’s rocket launch.

IDF soldiers were deployed to the area to search for shrapnel that may have landed on the Israeli side of the border nevertheless.
