1:30 pm: Sirens and two explosions in Tel Aviv. Sirens in Ashdod. This is the first time I have ever heard a radio personality in the studio say “sirens are sounding here”. This is a game changer folks.
12:30 pm: Sirens and explosions in Beersheva.
12:00 pm: Sirens are sounding in Sderot.
There are thousands of police deployed around Israel now to protect the public from possible riots. A large number are deployed in Jerusalem near the Kotel and the Temple Mount.
11:30 am: Rockets have fallen in Ofakim and other places in the south. An anti-tank rocket hit a jeep containing photographers from Reuters – they escaped unharmed. I wonder if this will change some minds.
10:00 am: Sirens sounding in Ashkelon.
9:42 am: A direct hit onto a house in the south, thank G-d no injuries.
Well, Hamas, being Hamas, is sending rockets into Israel while the Prime Minister of Egypt is in Gaza. The Israeli government promised to hold back attacks on terrorist targets in Gaza if the terrorists did the same – and they are of course ignoring this.
9:30 am: Sirens going off in Kiryat Gat.
9:20 am: Sirens sounding in Kiryat Malachi, the city where three Israelis were killed by a rocket yesterday.
9:00 am: Sirens sounding in ring communities right near the Gaza border.
Israel has announced that it will not fire at targets in Gaza during the time that the Prime Minister of Egypt will visit Gaza, on the condition of course that the terrorists don’t fire rockets into Israel. It will be interesting to see what plays out here.
8:00 am: Ten rockets were fired in the last hour towards the south of Israel. The IDF has asked the public not to give out information about where the rockets have landed, as this helps the terrorists improve their “aim”.
