Rockets on Haifa today


So far at time of writing (7 p.m. Israel time) we in Haifa have experienced about 9 air aid warnings and 14 rockets that have landed on Haifa today. The worst attack was at about 11 a.m. when we heard sirens which gave about 60 seconds warning. I was in my car at the time (on the way home from a gym class) - I stopped my car and sought shelter in someone's garage. It had rather a flimsy roof but almost certainly was a better option than staying in the car.

A car driver not far from our home was killed in that first attack (see picture) as was an Arab worker in a carpentry workshop who was working with earplugs (against the noise of the machinery) and didn't hear the sirens in time. Later there were several alarms without any rockets falling . Ans also several rockets that landed in Haifa without any alarms going off. Evidently the alarm systems are far from perfect.
