Expecting attacks on Tel Aviv and surroundings
Shelters ordered to open in all cities within 80 km (50 miles) of Gaza — that is past Netanya folks.
Homefront command as just ordered that shelters be opened in Tel Aviv and the surrounding areas because they are expecting long range and heavy duty rockets to be fired at the center of the country at just about any time.
I just went down and cleared out all the baby strollers from in front of our pseudo basement door. I won’t go down there if the sirens sound, except to help get the kids down –we’ve got nearly 30 of them in our apartment building — and instead will hang with my cats. Most of the families with children go down.
Hamas is, of course, doing their thing with using human shields. We warned them a building was going to be targeted and to evacuate it and so what did they do but put a bunch of civilians on the roof. They clearly wanted their civilians to die and they were obliged.
I’ve got to run to the store and pick up water and stuff, some to put down in the basement for the kids if they have to be down there any length of time and some for me and my cats. Will update again in a bit (and you can follow me on twitter as well @israeliminx)
