Iranian Revolutionary Guards overseeing Gaza missile fire
2012-11-17
TEL AVIV — Advisers from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Units are in the Gaza Strip helping to oversee the firing of long range rockets by jihadist groups there, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.
That's an act of war if Bibi wants it to be...
The information comes as the Iranian-backed Islamic Jihad group today claim responsibility for what it said was missile fire at Tel Aviv. The organization has claimed it had fired Iranian Fajr-5 missiles aimed at Tel Aviv.

Earlier today, one rocket launched from the Gaza Strip landed in Rishon Letzion, some 7 miles south of Tel Aviv. About three hours later another explosion was heard in the Tel Aviv area. No causalties were reported in either Tel Aviv or Rishon Leztion. Hamas’s so-called military wing took credit for the rocket Rishon Leztion rocketing.

Since yesterday, Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile defense system has intercepted 105 rockets, while 274 rockets have struck Israel, mostly in cities near the Gaza Strip.

#11  DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > ISRAEL'S BARAK [Defense Minister] SEEKS [Knesset = Budget funds] THREE MORE "IRON DOME" ROCKET INTERCEPTORS - YAHOO NEWS!

As for the IRGC Advisors, IIRC Iran was agz any PA/Paleo compromises wid Israel - in addition, as per the threat of anti-NucProg US-Iran War [ground war]it behooves Tehran to gave IRGC + other elements as close to Israel as possible in case such a mil conflict arises. THE PRESENCE OF IRAN'S ADVISORS IS OMINIOUS FOR BOTH THE US + ISRAEL BECAUSE IT INFERS PALEO MILITANT GROUPS MAY BE AMONG THE FIRST TO BE ARMED WID NUKE-WMD TECHS BY IRAN IN CASE OF US-IRAN WAR.

#10  Iran is repor criticizing Israel's "Iron Dome" BMDS as being only able to intercept 1/5th of the Paleo rockets, thus is incapable of stopping Iran's much more potent SHAHAB-3 LRBMS + other.

FYI, as per WAFF, HAMAS IS CLAIMING A ISRAELI F-16 WAS SHOT DOWN OVER GAZA.

#9  Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Israel's operation in Gaza: "The goal of the operation is to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages. Only then will Israel be calm for forty years."

I'm afraid he's wrong. They ARE in the Middle Ages and that's an optimistic assessment.

When Gaza was taken, the male population was put to the sword and the women and children were sold into slavery.
