Unless no one noticed, there was no footage of intercepts of rockets from Gaza into Israel. If one were to examine the trajectory of the majority of rockets fired, intercepts would have been well within camera range and Israel’s claims of 655 intercepts, not one was filmed.
There was only stock footage released on the supposed “Iron Dome” missile system which we now learn may not be operating for three or more years.
In an interview with a top US defense official and long time friend of Bibi Netanyahu, I was told the Rafael “Tamir” system is barely as sophisticated as the rockets Palestinians had been making in their basements and unlikely to have been able to intercept more than a very small percentage of incoming projectiles.
Now, private sources, private but “knowlegable,” place “Tamir intercepts” at between 12 and 17% and those are only of smaller short range rockets.
The long range rockets that hit and overshot both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem were intercepted more successfully. Why?
American crews, 1500 American military technicians who remained in Israel after recent exercises, operated advanced Patriot III systems.
Those hypersonic interceptors costing over $3 million each, fired two at a time at each $1500 Fajr 5. That, along with the cost of the crews put a price on defending Israel’s air incursions into Gaza, a conflict begun based on an Israeli political assassination using an American F-16 and 2000 pound bomb, at over $100,000,000.
It also put 1500 American troops into a combat role against civilians in Gaza. Defending a side with overwhelming military advantage is not an honorable role for the US military and may well be full complicity in war crimes that the Palestinian State will, finally, be able to bring to the ICC.

I have never seen so few people know so much about everything. Most of it is endless ramblings about stuff you couldn't know unless you were in the cia. The racisim here is sickening. None of you could have a job, nobody could put up with any of your rants. How do you get to your point in life where you know everything there is to know about everything and all you can do with it is post crap on the internet on a stock chat forum?? Fools.
