addressing the percentage of rockets intercepted out of the rockets that were engaged.

Depends on what you mean by "intercept". The anti-missile missile may explode the warhead of the incoming rocket and that is like you say, "successful". The problem that was being addressed was what happens to all the debris from both weapons?

Although a warhead may not impact the ground, all of the debris from both rockets destruction surely will. That was one of the problems encountered with the Patriot in Desert Storm. Remains to be seen here. Even if 86% of the missiles fired are "destroyed", the other 14% of Iron Drome missiles debris still has to come down somewhere. Thats the unsuccessful part. Otherwise, its a big success of course.


If its so successful maybe they can cut back 86% on the 1000 lb. bombs being dropped on Gaza?

Well, I found where the RT transmission is coming from on google maps. So now you know where at least two of the bombs have dropped. You can't tell anything about the nature of the targeted buildings with the low res of the aerial-photo, sadly.

I can easily be wrong but those look like troop carriers to me.

I'm pretty sure that is an Iron D ome battery. Two of them. A privileged peek at that. When you google it you get pictures of the launcher and not much else.

I made a blow up and marked what I believe to be the launcher itself. Sitting there between the operators and radar dish tracks. Kind of "canted" at that slight angle?


Two command and control tracks (with the "canvas" on back), two detection radar units (with the dish and twin upright antennas) and I don't see the other launcher from this angle.

The dead giveaway is that buzz in the background of Reuters that you can hear when the traffic dies down. If that radar detects a rocket your'e going to hear it squeal over Reuter's audio channel.
Yes I've seen later posts and corrected my error.Thank you kindly for for correcting me!

No way,the blast would cripple them lol..anyway it's far to small to house the dome battery
it's a mobile artillery (mortar) position, as i mentioned in my earlier post.

The semi-empty square across the street from the RT feed location used to be a security complex for years until an airstrike four years ago. Did they hit it again just in case?

So did I. A recoilless on a scooter.

Is that called a "shoot and scoot"?

In the ass end of the M113 if it's a mortar track.

Respectfully, those aren't m113 APC variants. See the Windshield? Thats not a "combat" vehicle. Tanks that go places and get shot at don't have canvas tops and windshields. Those are command and control. Still hearing that active radar buzz. Do they use that for firing mortars?

The tracks with the tall twin antennae are M113's. The canvas-backs are M548's. Which is a big, tracked, pick-up truck. It carries pretty much anything. IDF might have a command and control version, I don't know. If they were C2 they'd have more antennae on them, I'd guess. The M548 is a M113 variant...

Appears to be a news conference setting up.

Is this a ceasefire?

In Hebrew, in HEEEEBREW.

Notice how English transforms the Hebrew v's into b's??? ya'akov = Jacob, Calev = Caleb, etc.
