6:52 PM Rocket Alert: Gaza Border

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.

3 Grad Rockets Were Fired on Friday from the Sinai

Saturday, July 4th, 2015

ISIS-Linked Sinai Terrorists Attempt to Drag Israel Into War With Rocket Fire

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Sinai terrorists — already engaged in battle with Egypt — expanded their range of attack on Friday to include southern Israel. At least one, possibly two rockets were launched in the direction of the Eshkol Regional Council district at about 4:30 pm local time.

The rocket fire followed two intense days of clashes between Da’esh (ISIS)-linked “Sinai Province” terrorists and top Egyptian security personnel from the army and police. The Gaza-based Hamas terror organization, spawned originally by the outlawed Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, was also found to have been helping Sinai Province in their battle, according to the IDF.

The jihadists ambushed the Egyptian forces in 15 separate locations on Wednesday using advanced weaponry, much of which appeared to have been produced by Russia. An Egyptian government spokesperson said more than 100 terrorists were killed in the battle, which continued into Thursday.

The IDF went to high alert along the southern border in the wake of the clashes. Highway 12, which traverses the southern Negev to Eilat, was officially closed to civilian traffic at 5 am Friday until further notice. “The highway was closed temporarily in line with the situation assessments, out of security considerations and the obligation to protect the citizens of Israel,” and IDF spokesperson said on Friday.

Israeli officials confirmed that one of the rockets fired on Friday landed in an open area in the district close to what was the Israeli-Egyptian border. IDF officials believe the rocket was fired from the Sinai Peninsula due to its proximity to the border.

Residents of Jewish communities near the Israel-Egypt border had a window of barely 15 seconds in which to race for shelter, courtesy of the Code Red rocket alert siren. The residents are maintaining their awareness for the duration, knowing they may once again need to make a run for their safe spaces over the Sabbath at any time.
