This morning another rocket was fired into Israel. It is the eighth missile shot at the Jewish State in thirty days. While collective damage has been negligible, the uptick signals a resurgence of hostilities, mostly by ISIS in the Sinai and its allies in Gaza.
According to a new report, Israel is not prepared to adequately protect civilians in what most expect will be the nation's next war; namely, a war with Hezbollah in Lebanon in which 1,500 missiles are expected every day for ten days before the attack can be halted.
A high ranking Iranian official states that his country's missiles are being manufactured in several Middle East countries. Why? To address "the Israeli threat."
Upping the ante of superpower war in the Middle East, Russia is deploying two state-of-the art defense systems in Syria. One fires missiles called "Gladiator;" the other, "Giant." Israel's concern is that Russia might use the missiles to shoot down Israeli fighter jets.
At the kickoff of "Sacred Defense Week" in Iran, its military leaders announced mass production plans for three long-range missile systems, boasting that, collectively, they will provide Tehran with targets anywhere - and with any level of destructive power.
