Rockets fron Gaza
The IDF Spokesman today announced a rocket launch from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory was identified.
As a result of the launch, a red alert was activated in the app and in open space only.
There were no injuries or damage.
The Eshkol Regional Council said, "About half an hour ago, a single rocket was detected in our area in the center of the Council. Apparently, it was a fall in an open area near the perimeter fence. No alarm was sounded in the communities because there was no danger of it falling inside the communities. We're in contact with the IDF and there's no change in the guidelines."
Yesterday, an incendiary balloon was found near Moshav Tidhar in the Bnei Shimon Regional Council. A resident who discovered the balloon called the police and a sapper neutralized the charge.
The past month-and-a-half has been relatively quiet on the Israeli-Gaza border.
The defense establishment warned that if sovereignty is implemented, there may be an escalation on this border.
#Israel's Defense Minister Benny Gantz met with #IDF Chief of Staff, Head of the Shin Bet and Mossad Head and told them that Jerusalem will announce the beginning of the #annexation process over part of the #WestBank in the coming days
8 rocket tests by Hamas within couple hours. Rockets fired towards the sea. Meanwhile Palestinian media reports Israel has started a major arrest campaign in West Bank. Some indications Israel could be headed for surprise annexation after hinting delays. I'm still doubtful tho.
21 rockets. Pal media claims these rockets have a range of 250km
They also claim they're launching M-75's and R-160's, which if I remember correctly, does not max out at 250 kilometers. R-160, a Syrian made rocket, has a distance between 90 to 160 kilometers and has been used on attacks on Hadera. M-75 rocket is the Gazan Fajr-5, range=75km
The Israeli military is preparing for a massive military operation against Hezbollah should the Lebanese proxy of Iran try to attack anytime soon. This is the most comprehensive deployment of intelligence and combat units since the 2006 Lebanon war.
The #IDF continue to move additional hardware to the northern border as tensions remain high with #Hezbollah. Aerial activity is constant over the region with little or no breaks for the last 200 hours. #Israel#Lebanon.
JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday warned the Lebanese militant Hezbollah group and others after Israeli forces said they thwarted an infiltration attempt from Syria by suspected militants.
The Israeli military announced late Monday that it had struck targets in Syria after the militants tried to plant explosives in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights. Israel struck the four suspects, who were believed to have been killed.
Netanyahu, who toured a military base on Tuesday, said Israel would not hesitate to take further action.
“We hit a cell and now we hit the dispatchers. We will do what is necessary in order to defend ourselves. I suggest to all of them, including Hezbollah, to consider this,” he said.
The incidents come amid heightened tension on Israel’s northern frontier following a recent Israeli airstrike that killed a Hezbollah fighter in Syria and anticipation that the militant Lebanese group would retaliate.
Following the airstrike, the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights was hit by explosives fired from Syria and Israel responded by attacking Syrian military positions and beefing up its forces in the area.
Last week, Israel also said it thwarted an infiltration attempt from Lebanon by Hezbollah militants, setting off one of the heaviest exchanges of fire along the volatile Israel-Lebanon frontier since a 2006 war between the bitter enemies.
Israel considers Hezbollah to be its most immediate threat. Since battling Israel to a stalemate during a monthlong war in 2006, Hezbollah has gained more battlefield experience fighting alongside the Syrian government in that country’s bloody civil war.
In the last hour multiple Red Alert Sirens sounded in northern #Israel, this was a false arm due to suspicion of a drone infiltration. #IDF/#IAF aerial activity continues to be on alert in the area and is extremely active.
#Israel has conducted Airstrikes in #Gaza after Gaza factions have launched incendiary balloons into Southern Israel. It's likely if the increasing tensions don't calm down we will likely see rocket launches by Gaza factions followed by Israeli strikes on Gaza militant sites
In response to a series of explosive balloons launched from Gaza into Israel over the last week, we just struck a Hamas aerial defense post, underground infrastructure, & observation posts in Gaza. Hamas will bear the consequences for terror activity against Israeli civilians.
ongoing IDF strike in #Gaza wider than in previous nights; more artillery fire and missiles reported; 3 injured in total so far according to locals; earlier today IDF chief Kochavi hinted that #Israel will respond with more force to arson balloons
#IDF says jets and attack helicopters have struck additional #Hamas targets in #Gaza following the rocket fire and continued launching of incendiary balloons throughout the day, including a military compound belonging to one of the group’s special units
Iron Dome incoming siren activated in Ashkelon and Zikim. IDF checking reports

Joint Operations Room of Gaza factions in a statement say that they will protect the fishermen from Israel robbing them of their livelihoods . Israel closed the Gaza fishing zone on 16/8 in response to the explosive balloon attacks.
