By the #s, @IDFSpokesperson says 300 strikes today, busiest yet. Around 950 total. 710 rockets fired, 470 landed. Iron Dome = 33% success.
 Quoting: DarbyDoom


Darby, keep in mind that it does not shoot down everything. It determines the trajectory of the incoming rocket and figures out where it will likely land, if it is in the desert it will not waste a missile on it. Sometimes a rocket will run out of fuel and it's trajectory will rapidly change and depending on it's remaining time to the ground Iron Dome may not have the time to hit it before it hits the ground. It does do a pretty good job however.

Interesting side note: The Israelis just figured out that Hamas is manufacturing their own long range rockets locally on the Gaza Strip. It will be significantly harder for Israeli intelligence to form an accurate picture of the number of these rockets locally constructed in Gaza. We have already seen that Israeli intelligence likely did not anticipate how many long-range rockets had escaped its first wave of strikes, and the fact that Hamas may have been producing these weapons could explain Israel's lack of complete information. They now have to go in on the ground, find these manufacturing facilities and destroy them. I can just about guarantee that a ground war is a certainty.

Stratfor's most recent Gaza update...

Discusses Gazan missile manufacturing (see Gerry's post).

Also discusses potential Hezbollah Involvement -

The group's fate is linked to that of the embattled regime of Syrian President Bashar al Assad; should Syria fracture along sectarian lines, Lebanon is likely to descend into civil war, and Hezbollah will have to conserve its strength and resources for a battle at home against its sectarian rivals...

At the same time, if Hamas is able to bog down Israeli ground forces by drawing them into a war of attrition in densely populated Gaza City, Hezbollah may see a political opportunity to burnish its credentials as the region's leading "resistance" movement. In this case, Hezbollah would likely monitor the situation until it could be assured that Israeli forces are sufficiently constrained on the Gaza front before it begins attacks on the northern front.

Hezbollah is not looking for a major confrontation with Israel, and the tens of thousands of additional Israeli reservists called up compared to Operation Cast Lead suggest that Israel is already preparing for a two-front contingency. If Hezbollah does decide to participate in the war, it would be carefully timed to drive an already embattled Israel toward a cease-fire so that Hezbollah could claim a largely symbolic victory at relatively little cost.

Gerry,

I found this explanation in a NY Times Article...

(Jabari) shifted Hamas’s low-grade militia into a disciplined force with sophisticated weapons like Fajr-5 rockets, which are named after the Persian word for dawn and have significantly increased the danger to Israel’s major cities. They have a range of about 45 miles and are fired by trained crews from underground launching pads.

Hamas had perhaps 100 of them until the Israeli attacks last week, which appear to have destroyed most of the stockpile. The rockets are assembled locally after being shipped from Iran to Sudan, trucked across the desert through Egypt, broken down into parts and moved through Sinai tunnels into Gaza, according to senior Israeli security officials.

The smuggling route involves salaried employees from Hamas along the way, Iranian technical experts traveling on forged passports and government approval in Sudan, Israeli officials said.

Mr. Jabari’s strategy has been so effective and alarming for Israel that it is preparing for a possible next stage in the four-day-old battle: a ground war in which its troops would seek to destroy remaining rocket launching bases and crews and munitions factories.

Under Mr. Jabari, Hamas also developed its own weapons industry in Gaza, building long-range rockets as well as drones that they hoped to fly over Israel just as Israeli drones roam the skies of Gaza, sowing fear in its population.

The current operation to eliminate the Hamas rocket launchers could serve to cripple the ability of Iran’s allies in Gaza from retaliating should Israel ever carry out its threat to attack Iranian nuclear facilities.

[link to www.nytimes.com]

Upshot - They assembled Farj-5 rockets in Gaza & had a homegrown rocket industry that included long-range rockets (see Gerry's post above)

Question - What is the difference between a long-range rocket & a short-range missile? IMO - The term "rocket" have a backyard hobby connotation that I don't think applies in this case..

Netanyahu: No Current Plans for Gaza Ground War

Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, gave private assurances to Barack Obama on Friday evening that his country was not planning at that moment to launch a ground invasion of Gaza—but those plans would change, he said, if Hamas escalated its rocket war.

The private assurances were at odds with public signals from Israel’s military. Tanks and artillery gathered at the border with Gaza on Saturday in preparation for what looked like an incursion...

One senior U.S. official told The Daily Beast, “The Israeli leadership at this point is leaning against a ground invasion. No one wants that. If Hamas ratchets up the pressure, however, they may elect to do so.”...

Netanyahu has given the impression at times that a strike on Gaza may be imminent. On Saturday, he vaguely promised to “broaden action inside Gaza” if the rocket barrages did not stop. He has called up 75,000 army reservists. Less than 13,000 reservists were activated before the 2008–2009 war in Gaza...

I believe the IDF will simply keep a status quo and allow little sleep to Hamas and continue to focus on the location of Hamas assets until they have achieved a level of comfort regarding the rocket order of battle, then they will move in. The end game is not so clear to me though. This is a wack a mole game of attrition with Hamas and their rockets. Invasion provides no lasting resolution.

Rocket fire from the Hamas-run Gaza Strip has subsided as cease-fire efforts appear to be gaining momentum.

The Israeli military said Sunday morning that Gaza militants haven't attacked Israel since the night before.

The lull coincides with Egyptian-led efforts to negotiate an end to the 5-day-old confrontation.

Rocket fire from the Hamas-run Gaza Strip has subsided as cease-fire efforts appear to be gaining momentum.

The Israeli military said Sunday morning that Gaza militants haven't attacked Israel since the night before.

The lull coincides with Egyptian-led efforts to negotiate an end to the 5-day-old confrontation.

Hamas may be slowing up, but Israel is still pounding the shit out of Gaza right now...It has been going around that the Israelis want a couple of years of peace and quiet out of this "intervention".

Also, they know that firing off their rockets gives away their position so when they fire them off they fire off all they have and then abandon the site.
