Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Thanks Amshi.

Thanks Qassam-ba! :)

Things are really heating up now.

The big question is going to be: Is Hizbolla going to attack with with their long range missiles, and when will the Palestinians start their WestBank offensive towards Jerusalem and Central Israel?

Scraps said...

KACH 613 said...

Yashar Koach!

WBS said...

I just heard on MSNBC that there were rockets fired into an area where reporters were and that it's possible that someone was injured. Have you heard about that?

Irina Tsukerman said...

Thanks for keeping us updated. I hope the children are all safe. Excellent banner!

WBS said...

Thanks for the updates. I posted on my blog that if anyone wants news, they should check here.

I did too but no one reads my blog so the purpose is unclear.

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

WBS: 3 possibilities:

7:45 Injuries reported in Nahariya, Rosh Pina and Chatzor.

WBS said...

Thank you Jameel. I appreciate what you're doing.

WBS said...

They just said Nahariya.

KACH 613 said...

They are now repoting on the 8:00 news aroutz shtayim about a (or more)katusha in Hifah.

Krum as a bagel said...

:29 PM Katyusha rockets strike Majdal Krum 3 wounded. Thie city is not related to this blog.

Um... Thanks?

(and thanks for the updates.)

WBS said...

Hezbullah is saying they didn't fire anything at Haifa.

WBS said...

Re: Journalists

There was either one non-serious injury or no injuries at all.

Truth said...

Eyewitness report from arab-occupied 'east' Jerusalem:

Every rag village of enemy scum as far as the eye can see is celebrating the 'holiday' with fireworks. Is that on CNN yet?


Truth.

Oleh Yahshan said...

Jameel,
I just got a report that a Katyusha Hit Kiryat Atta. - I will let you know more as I learn it (you are not online)

WBS said...

No Truth but MSNBC is reporting the all important news of Angelina Jolie's new movie role as Mariane Pearl.

CNN says Hezbullah launched those rockets into Haifa but Hezbullah has denied it (CNN hasn't heard that news yet, I guess).

WBS said...

Did anyone see the interview with Shimon Peres?

bec said...

just so you know, lots of pro-israel coverage on fox news.
also, for those in the US, ABC radio is filled with pro-israel commentary today with lots of callers verbalizing their support and many of them are non-jewish conservatives wondering why israel waited so long to attack. so it seems that here, there are a lot of supporters.
also, it was reported (on fox news) that the lebanese have been fleeing beirut, fearing an attack, and many (lebanese) have been wondering why hizbullah chose to open this "can of worms" and feel that they should have just left well enough alone, especially after israel pulled out of there in 2000. hopefully, their anger will get back to hizbullah.

stay safe, our prayers are with you.

WBS said...

CNN and MSNBC seem to be reporting the news neutrally.

WBS said...

By the way, Shimon Peres said (and I'm paraphrasing) that Israel and Lebanon have nothing against each other -- this is all hezbullah's doing.

KACH 613 said...

Report ch 10 Nassrala might be dead!

FrumGirl said...

Thank you so much for keeping us updated in such detail. Today is a fast day... lets use it to daven for the matzav in our beloved Israel! Jameel... you are an inspiration!

WBS said...

(Sayyed Hassan) Nasrallah, the Secretary General of hezbullah or Brigadier Staff Abbass Nassrala, Chief of Army Logistics for Lebanon?

Anonymous said...

Nasrallah from hezbullah but it is unconfirmed they heard it from arabs in Lebanon.

Truth said...

kach613: Report ch 10 Nassrala might be dead!

The US just vetoed Qatar's UN proposal to condemn Israel's activities in Gaza.
