“Military Intelligence director Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi warned that there are currently some 200,000 rockets and missiles aimed at Israel”.
Israel has been working on plans to reinforce buildings and is concerned that it will still leave 1.5 million Israelis without access to shelters. During the 2nd Lebanon War of 2006, 4,000 rockets were launched at Israel.
The next war will be ten times that amount which will kill about 200 civilians and destroy thousands of homes. Israel has a new IDF system which will detect the exact impact location in the case of missile attack.
Surrounded by the Muslim Brotherhood, as country after country transforms from dictatorship to religious Islamic rule, Israel is preparing for war.
In addition to giving the location of the hit, the IDF system will provide information on what kind of missile was launched and how much damage it caused.

The Israel Defense Forces has acquired a new system that will let it see exactly where every missile strike has landed if the home front is under attack.
The new system is a modification of an existing command-and-control system called Castle Lake, which gives details on the location of Israeli forces and, as far as they are known, of enemy targets – anything from rocket launchers to enemy commanders.
With the modification, Castle Lake will now also display a map of the country on which every missile that hits will be marked.
In addition to giving the location of the hit, the system will provide information on what kind of missile was launched, how much damage it caused and how long the home front has been under assault. That will enable commanders to factor developments on the home front into their operational decisions…Read here: Haaretz.com
Meanwhile, in one good sign, “Hamas rules out military support for Iran in any war with Israel,” read one headline in the British newspaper the Guardian recently.
…The statements made by Hamas leaders indicating that they “would not get involved” and are “not part of military alliances in the region” are significant. They show that Hamas wants to be on the winning side and has concluded that the Syria-Iran-Hezbollah axis is no longer on the rise.
Only two weeks ago, Hamas started backing the Syrian opposition against the Assad regime, which has hosted Hamas’ leadership in Damascus for many years.
In past years, the general assumption was that if Israel hit Iran’s nuclear facilities, retaliation would come not only from Iran but from Hamas and Hezbollah as well.
These remarks and actions from Hamas raise the question of whether Hezbollah will also give this one a pass. After all, Hezbollah chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah knows full well that Israel’s retaliation, should Hezbollah start a war, would be even greater than it was in 2006 (when Hezbollah’s capture and killing of several Israeli soldiers sparked the Second Lebanon War)…Read here: Terrorist Alliance Unravels
