Damage to house in Sderot from Gaza rocket

Sirens blaring everywhere


Considering this article about “Iron dome” it might be handy to understand what is going on in the Jewish military state right now. In their own media, they are very careful to not let on that there are deaths of IOF (they are buried at night and a gag order is in effect) or others. They do, however, make mention of the amount of rockets flying into Israel, and pretend that they are shooting some down out of the sky. So here’s a roundup of the last few days’ tallies of rockets followed by a list of where their “Code Red” sirens are blaring, indicating incoming rockets.

22:00 Jerusalem time: “Code Red” sirens:  Eshkol, Dimona, Tel Aviv, Ashkelon,  Gedera,  Ramat Gan, Afula and essentially all of South and Central “Israel” (Ma’an)

Incoming rocket counts from Israeli media:

11 July, 2014: 105 incoming, in addition to “a number/slew/volley of”, with means they came so fast and furiously that they couldn’t be counted or countered

10 July, 2014: 119, plus “a number of” and “a slew of” which means that they came flying in so quickly they couldn’t be counted.

339 rockets have fallen in Israel (since 8 July) and 76 have been “intercepted” by the Iron Dome.

9 July, 2014: Counting forwards from 5:35 pm, there were ~83 rockets fired into Israel, then mysteriously at 11:33 pm it lists “a number of”without giving any definite number meaning there were too many to count.
