In Advance Of The Retaliation: Gaza Missile Range Infographic

Tyler Durden's picture





 

With Israel having launched the biggest Gaza escalation in years, the waiting game now turns to the Gaza retaliation, which if the rhetoric is any indication, will be substantial. So what can Gaza do, and how far can its rockets penetrate, assuming they can bypass the Israeli "Iron Dome" defense shield? The following infographic from Stratfor explains it. The ranging is particularly relevant in the context of the Dimona nuclear power plant, which at least at first blush appears unreachable - after all, if Gaza really wanted to unleash the gates of hell on Israel, it would focus all of its firepower precisely on this one spot.

From Stratfor

Israel Defense Forces confirmed Nov. 14 that it had killed Ahmed Jabari, the leader of Hamas' armed wing, the Izz al-Deen al-Qassam Brigades. The airstrike that killed Jabari came a day after Israel warned that it was considering targeted assassinations in response to increasing rocket fire from Gaza. In addition to the strike on Jabari, the Israeli air force reportedly attacked a cache of 20 long-range missiles and a Gaza police station, and loud explosions are being reported in Gaza City. An IDF spokesman announced that the Israeli military was embarking on Operation Pillar of Defense, which could include a ground incursion into Gaza. The assassination of Jabari seems to have been a first salvo, one that will provoke retaliation from Hamas and that could affect Jordan and Syria. Renewed and expanded bouts of rocket fire are certain, including rockets targeting urban areas. But the question is what other operations Hamas can and will conduct.

So even assuming a missile can enter deep into Israel territory, the clip below shows the defensive chain of Israeli events that is unleashed next.

All of Palestine that existed when the Romans called it Palestine still exists.  The name Palestine has always been the name of a region, not the name of a nation or country.  That entire Palestinian region is still there, even tho the names of the countries/nations within that region have changed over time.

It's not a "refugee camp."

It's a concentration camp or ghetto.

Just like the Jewish ghettos of Nazi occupied Poland.

OK kids.  Here is a homework assignment for everybody.  Compare and contrast the political and economic characteristics of modern Gaza with the Jewish ghettos of Nazi occupied Poland between 1939 and 1942.  How is life different or the same for a human being living in these environments.  Oh sorry.  The gatekeepers don't think the residents are human beings.

Germany, Italy, Austria, just in the last century. Europeans are second to none in kicking each other's asses, and America has been aligned with Europe due to the sheer number of European immigrants. We just got to the point where all the fight had left us, so now we give a shit about the rest of the world. No doubt, that will change and we'll be back at each other's throats, and whatever intrigues Europeans have in the third world will go unnoticed except by intervening European or American navies. If Vietnam had occurred during WWII it would have been but a footnote in history, not an obsession of it.

Germany, Italia, Austria, France, Serbia were bombed by the USA.

The conflicts between the occidental world and the muslim world have deeper roots and violence than the superficial cold war. Israel, might not be completly in the occidental world (not christian, and not in America or Europe), yet they are the ennemy of our ennemy. Said differently, Israel is our friend.

Call me a zionist, but in a new world paradigm with the muslim and confucianism worlds getting more powerful every day as the occident decline, we must get along shoulder to shoulder with our allies. If Israel fall to the muslim hands, it might not be a direct threat to the USA, but the Europe might be one day part of the ummah.

 Leaving the USA alone, with all the resentment in the world against your world hegemony. Then, no one will be left to cry if you get wiped out of the map by an EMP.

I assume you are being tongue-in-cheek and actually realize that the Bible says no such thing.

If the Bible is true, Jerusalem will eventually be conquered by the non-Jew and nobody but God will come to the rescue.  That is the point, according to the Bible.  When God alone rescues Israel, that will be proof indeed that God is God.  Should be an interesting show to watch if it happens.

Oh wait ... Jerusalem has already been conquered by the non-Jew a number of times.  So is the Bible talking about that, or some other time in the future that hasn't happened yet?

A missle on Tel Aviv will lead to an immediate and intense invasion of Gaza. It will mean 4 million Israelis will be in range of active missles and will bring Israeli industry to a complete halt. Hamas knows if they fire a missle on Tel Aviv and it makes it through, it will be all out war which you can be sure, Israel dominate.

This map will be out of date when they get the new 'Pathan III with knobs on' missile from Iran.

We don't have any missiles over at http://alpha-dog-food.com but we sure have got some nice bazookas you boys can look at :-)

Kinda looks like Dimona is well within range of a mobile missile fired from Jordan. Of course, no chance of that, thank God.

Given the recent unrest and that their security/intelligence minister just got arrested for corruption and given a 3 year jail sentence, who knows?

Not to mention the fact that a lot of palestinians now live in jordan.

"Achmed, let's fire some more rockets at the Israelis.That will piss them off good."

"This is good idea, Mohammed. What could go wrong?"

(Ambulance siren in distance)

"Uh-oh. I think that was the boss's car."

"More rockets!"

Brilliant.

I urge people to watch "Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land", a 2004 documentary by Sut Jhally and Bathsheba Ratzkoff before making an opinion of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

Is iron dome the same as the aegis system or is it a patriot copy with boosted sensors?

"Gazans fire 87 rockets into Israel; Iron Dome intercepts 25 Iron Dome will not save them,imo."

 

Maybe.   But to be clear the system calculates an impact point and only f ires if the rockets are on a course to hit populated ares.   So of 87 rockets fired into Israel....Iron Dome intercepting 0 is a success if they're both calculated to fall in unpopulated areas and actually fall in unpopulated areas.

FWIW, they're claiming an 80% success rate in Iron Dome missiles actually fired.  Intercepts are made against well under half of rockets fired.   Most land in open land with no casualties.

How many of the un-intercepted had a chance of hitting a target? For example. if a dozen of those 87 were actually on target, and 25 were intercepted, there's a good chance most if not all of the damaging ones were destroyed.

If only 30 would have hit populated areas - yes.  

The system is designed to fire at rockets that are projected to fall in populated areas.   Not at all rockets.   Most rockets fired land in unpopulated areas, and intercepting them would be a waste of  interceptor missiles (and money).

Firepower? And Stratfor, in league with Goldman Sachs, is supposed to be the military armament expert; and he (George Friedman) doesn’t recognize that Israel has the firepower -- tanks, jets, bombers, attack helicopters, night visions equipment, nuclear capabilities and all the rest…including the backup of the world’s largest military machine in the hands of an Israeli-groomed puppet, Barack Obama?

And, never mind I suppose, that it was Stratfor that suggested that a re-election strategy for Obama would be to take the initiative and bomb Iran.

Most people know Gaza is a prison camp; you can’t go there and you can’t come here. So to argue that they will be escalating a retaliation against the Israelis when Israel is a nuclear power backed by a superpower is beyond the pale. We're talking of an IDF that can eliminate (assassinate) anyone at anytime without putting its own forces in danger, all done by the technology of using satellites, airborne drones or elevated cameras at strategic locations along the border.

It is only in a doublespeak world of deceit where retaliationis the term applied to using sticks and stones to defend yourself and your children against heavy tanks and bombers.

Actually, it was ended with a circular-error-probability of 100 yards and a 400 yard fireball.

The people of Gaza should be fabulously wealthy, considering the resource wealth under their feet and off their shore.  All that's needed is equipment and trained manpower.  The United Nations and humanitarian agencies should actively encourage exploration and production.
