Today's report from Karen Russo:
Starting late yesterday afternoon, it began raining in southern Israel which, coupled with the bitter cold, may account for a night of relative quiet from our local terrorists. Maybe they couldnt keep their powder dry, or maybe they couldnt get the matches lit. In any event, it was a much needed night of blessed silence.
Interesting, that two of the places rockets hit in Beersheba yesterday were schools, one a high school near the city center, the other an elementary school in one of the suburbs. Whats weird is how often these terrorist rockets hit places where children tend to congregate. It isnt because the missiles are so well aimed that they can choose a specific target they just aim in a general direction, and so often they hit schools or playgrounds.
Whats equally weird is how often there dont happen to be any children in the school, or on the playground, at that exact moment. [God has His Hand in this I am sure-Syncro]
Something else interesting popped into the news. We know now that the Grad model Katyushka rockets that were fired into Beersheba were manufactured in China, and smuggled into Aza through Egypt. Filled with metal balls that can scatter up to 350 feet from where the rocket hits, theyre more deadly that earlier models. These same rockets were also fired into Ashkelon and Ashdod, sometimes packed with ammonia, too, to increase their durability and lethality.
Oh-oh. Here we go again. The lull is over. The warning sirens are wailing away. A missile hit somewhere.
Another very informative first hand report. The rest can be Read Here
Thanks for these daily Israel threads, Cindy.

Dang, I'm going to have to find some way to fix the formatting.
It looks like the writings are formatted for Hebrew!

NOTE: The following news brief is a quote:
Air Force strikes mosque in Jabaliya
Published: 01.02.09, 00:02 / Israel News
The Air Force (IAF) struck a mosque in Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza. According to the IDF, the mosque was being used to store arms and as a communications center, as well as cover for terrorist activities. It is the fifth mosque to have been bombed since the beginning of the operation. (Hanan Greenberg)

“IDF Strikes Second Hamas Leader”
by Maayana Miskin
ARTICLE SNIPPET: “(IsraelNN.com) The IAF hit a house in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood of Gaza City on Thursday evening. The strike targeted senior Hamas terrorist Nabil Abu el-Amrin.
Powerful secondary blasts were seen from the air after Amrin’s house was hit, confirming IDF intelligence according to which the building was used to store large quantities of explosives and ammunition. It was not immediately clear if Amrin was killed in the strike.
On Thursday afternoon the IAF hit and killed Nizar Rayyan, making him the most senior Hamas terrorist to be killed by Israel in several years. Several others were killed in the blast as well.”

You’re welcome Syncro and thank you for your posts.
It’s important to read/feel what it’s like to be attacked
and how to deal with it.

The first terrorist attack that I can recall happened way back before the '67 war and it was a grenade attack on a nursery at a Kibbutz while most of the people were working in the fields.

(.He that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough." Pv.28:19')
Yes, and how despicable.
I remember some time ago terrorists attacked a school in Israel with some deaths.
Almost at once, all teachers in Israel were armed and the cowards quit (well at least slowed down considerably) attacking the children at schools.
