IDF Operation Protective Edge - August 25, 2014


Newest updates will be at the top. To refresh [F5 key]



********************************************************************************************************
11:26pm The IDF has not given any directives regarding the security situation in Northern Israel. 

The Kiryat Shmonah municipality has taken the initiative and requested that all residents stay in protected areas, and that all public bomb shelters be opened.
********************************************************************************************************
11:20pm Update: 2 confirmed Katyusha rockets were fired earlier from Lebanon. IDF originally thought only 1 was fired. This may be the source of the reports that the siren didn't go off for second rocket.

********************************************************************************************************
11:09pm IDF retaliates with heavy artillery fire, following rockets fried from Lebanon into Israel. 

Northern residents may have confused IDF shelling with incoming rockets (as there have been additional reports of loud explosions throughout northern Israel, and they may have thought it was an additional attack, without warning sirens)

2:21pm Gunman opens fire in the Amal polytechnic school in the Israeli-Arab town of Taibe - killing the school principal.

This morning an unidentified gunman opened fire in the Taibe Amal PolyTech high school, killing the principal, Yusef Haj-Yichye in front of his teaching staff. The gunman fired 5 bullets and fled.

An ambulance took the principal to the Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba where he was pronounced dead.

Haj-Yichye was the principal of the school for many years, and announced that he would be running for mayor of Taibe in the next municipal election.

Haj-Yichye was also considered to be one of the main reasons that the Taibe Amal Polytechnic-multidisciplinary school consistently improved and that the student body's academic achievements routinely rose from year to year.

The police have opened an investigation.

12:34pm Israeli Study -- Moderate consumption of alcohol (social drinking) can reduce anxiety and depression related to terror and war, according to an American-Israeli study which explored this link among Israelis during the 2008 Operation Cast Lead in Gaza.

This sort of drinking must be done in moderation -- to prevent people from running into a closet instead of the bomb shelter.
