Update: Rocket Siren in Southern Israel ‘False Alarm’

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

Residents of southern Israel were sent running to shelters Wednesday night when they heard the Red Alert air raid siren warning them of an incoming rocket attack in Gaza Belt region communities.

However, Israeli defense officials notified media within the hour that apparently the sirens that activated in numerous Gaza border communities had been triggered by mistake, and the alert was a “false alarm.”

Reportedly there were sounds of explosions on the other side of Israel’s southern border in the northern Sinai Peninsula, but it is not clear whether the two incidents were related.

IAF Retaliates Against Gaza Rocket Fire, Targets Hamas Training Camp

Monday, January 25th, 2016

IAF aircraft bombed a Hamas military training facility in central Gaza early Monday. The attack came in retaliation to a rocket attack late Sunday night.

Red Alert air raid sirens woke sleeping children and families in communities in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, triggered by the rocket fire from Gaza.

In January alone, three rockets have been launched from Gaza and have hit Israeli territory. IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said, “Tonight, families in southern Israel were once again forced to find shelter, fleeing radical Islamic terrorism emanating from the Gaza Strip.

“Hamas is responsible and is accountable for all attacks from the Gaza Strip. The IDF will continue to operate and defend against those that undermine Israeli sovereignty while jeopardizing the safety and wellbeing of civilians.”

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.
