Mid-morning Update (7/14/06)

3:26 AM: (No, we're not sleeping yet.) CNN has confirmed that it not a rocket or a Katyusha that hit Haifa. It was, as was guaranteed by Hizbullah, a long range ballistic missile. These missiles have the potential to reach extremely strategic targets in Israel, like the Hadera power station, which is now vulnerable to attack.

Jpost is reporting that several communities in the North and along the Northern border have been told to to remain in their bomb shelters throughout the night. If they can't get to a bomb shelter, they are to sleep in an inner room in the house, away from all windows.

Maariv on-line is reporting that One of the head officials for the Air Force has made this statement: "If the children of Nahariya can't sleep, the children of Beirut will also not sleep... We're far from using the full power of the Air Force."

Though it was not widely reported, we have mentioned it here. Residents in Judea and Samaria have suffered from various acts of terrorism today. They included dangers on the main roads via Palestinian residents throwing rocks and fire-bombs at their cars. Arutz 7 has confirmed that an "explosive device was discovered at a hitchiking post in the city of Ariel, in Samaria." The Army was able to find and disarm the explosive before it detonated. As of now, there are no reported injuries.

Arutz 7 also reported that Kassams have continued to rain down on the residents to the north of Gaza and the Western Negav through-out the day. There are no reported injuries.

As of now, none of the major news agencies that I've checked have mentioned or have confirmed or unconfirmed reports of death(s) from the missile that landed in Haifa earlier tonight. There were some rumors going around that there was a reported death. As of now, nothing as been confirmed.

What has been confirmed, by Jpost, is that a girl injured in one of the Tzfat rocket attacks was suffering from a serious head injury and has been transferred to the Rambam hospital in Haifa. The head injury was caused by shrapnel from one of the Katyusha rockets.

(We are now heading off to bed. It's a quarter to 4, and it seems that even terrorists have to get their beauty sleep. I know that this has been an intense day, and I encourage all of you not in the country to return throughout the day to get the information that you're not getting from Fox News or CNN. We will continue to report and update the news continuously throughout the day.)

"If the children of Nahariya can't sleep, the children of Beirut will also not sleep... We're far from using the full power of the Air Force."

Gandhi once said, "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."

You're satisfying what cnn and fox news can't. thank you. It's like 3:30am here now and i can't go to sleep. The only thing more satisfying right now at this hour would be if i was on a plane to Israel and heading straight to a misrad hageyus.

You have failed to report the tens of thousands of Israeli shells falling on south lebanon and on civilian targets. You also never mentioned bombing the airports, power stations and beirut.

This 'eye for an eye' surely does not work to be used by Israel.Although Hizbollah kidnapped the 2 Israeli soldiers and killed some, it was , as reported, in repsponse to killing a shephard few days ago by Israeli forces. Hizbollah is also using the same standards you seem to be using.

It is very Ironic how the Israeli government is using the same 'logic' and 'wisdom' ( !! ) organizations ( terror orgs ) like Hizbollah is using !!

Osaid,
If you really believe that that is the reason Hizbullah attacked I suggest you listed to Nasrallah more and read less of your propoganda Crap!

Nasrallah Stated clearly that in his mind it is 100% ok to kidnap soldiers, and other than that, they have kept the are quiet (other than the attack 2 months ago).

Once again just like it's not about Shalit in Gaza, this is not about the 2 soldiers up north. This is to stop hizbullah from doing whatever it wants whenever it wants - to Israel and to Lebanon. I find it hard to understand how you support a group that basically has taken another country hostage - I would suggest you read some lebanees blogs - they are trully pissed at hizbullah.

Can you also show me were we are targeting civilians? a run way that is used to bring in weapons losses it's "civil Status" so do building that have bunkers inside them. and roads during war are not "civil" (see WWII for examples). Oh and I did report it further down and even posted Pics on the other blog

bottom line - until Lebanon fills Un resolution 1559 - and brings it army down to the border we should not stop - we have nothing against Lebanon - and would like nothing more than to have a quiet border with them just like we have with Jordan and Egypt.

Mordys - Glad we could be of service.

That's a cute little quote. Too bad it's a complete lie and has nothing to do with war-fare. Just a little fyi, Ghandi's method of non-violence did NOT work and wasn't what drove the British out. IT WAS WHEN THE INDIANS BEGAN KILLING THE BRITISH THAT THE BRITISH LEFT. Yeah, nobody like to talk about that. Not very sexy or hollywood. Also, why don't you take a look at what India looks like today, M'kay? Oh yeah, and many people are coming out now and stating that Ghandi wasn't as big of an influence as he was played out to be, and that he wasn't really that good a person. Read the National Geographic article done on him and India. Very enlightening.
