IDF Operation Protective Edge - August 19, 2014 4pm-6:00pm



5:23pm Israeli negotiators recalled from Cairo. IDF hits 10 targets.
Deja vu.

5:14pm Grad rocket hits in Eshkol region. Sirens went off locally, but there seems to be a problem with the rocket alert announcements.

4:56pm A solid analysis of the historical failures to stop Hamas, and how it grows back stronger each time.

4:49pm IDF Spox confirms that the IDF is striking targets in Gaza in response to rocket fire.

4:44pm A few comments about the previous rocket strike. Despite many people reporting hearing loud explosions near Beer Sheva....it's near an Air Force base and there are sonic booms from time to time. Additionally, there were no sirens. Therefore, we didn't post about the rockets till the IDF confirmed it. 

To their credit, the IDF confirmed it very quickly, despite the consequences and the implication that the IDF will need to retaliate.
