Hamas: We were shooting at nuclear reactor

Hamas: We attempted to hit the nuclear reactor in Dimona
By JPOST.COM STAFF, YAAKOV LAPPIN
LAST UPDATED: 07/09/2014 20:01


3 rockets fired at Negev city which contains Israel's nuclear reactor; 2 fall in open areas, one intercepted.

Three rockets were launched at Dimona in southern Israel on Wednesday afternoon. The Iron Dome intercepted one rocket before it could land, while two other rockets landed in open areas.

Dimona is the location of Israel's nuclear reactor. There was no indication that rockets damaged any part of the reactor.

Hamas claimed responsibility for the rockets, stating that it had been attempting to hit the nuclear reactor.


Militants from Hamas's Qassam Brigades said they had launched long-range M-75 rockets towards Dimona.

Minutes later the Iron Dome intercepted rockets in Ness Tziona , Yavne and Rehovot in central Israel as Gaza terrorists extended the range of their rockets on Operation Protective Edge's second day.

Earlier on Wednesday, two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip were intercepted over the Greater Tel Aviv area.

Code Red rocket alert sirens sounded in Holon and Bat Yam prior to the interceptions.

No injuries or damage were reported in the attacks.

The Islamic Jihad took responsibility for the rockets fired toward Tel Aviv.

Rocket alert sirens also sounded in Zichron Yaakov, some 120 km north of the Gaza Strip on Wednesday.

The IDF confirmed that two rockets fell in open areas of the Hof Hacarmel Regional Council south of Haifa. The attack marked the furthest north that rockets from Gaza have fallen.

A Code Red siren sounded in nearby Binyamina on Tuesday, but that proved to be a false alarm.

Channel 2 suggested that the rockets may have been the Syrian-made M-302 type rocket, which was used to target Hadera on Wednesday.

More than 80 rockets fired from Gaza have been launched at Israel on Wednesday.

The IDF launched Operation Protective Edge early on Tuesday morning to try to eradicate increased rocket fire from Gaza.

Hamas has increased the range of its rocket fire during Operation Protective Edge, launching attacks at Ashdod, Hadera, Tel Aviv and the Jerusalem area, in addition to the western Negev communities which neighbor Gaza.

The Iron Dome rocket defense system has intercepted dozens of projectiles fired toward population centers, limiting the injuries caused by the attacks.

Reuters contributed to this report.

couldn't damage to the cooling system have a similar effect as the melt downs in japan?

Not likely at all. If the cooling system is damaged, the reactor would SCRAM automatically (or manually). The problem with Fukushima was that while they SCRAMed too, the tsunami wiped out the secondary generators which were running the pumps to keep the core cooled, which still has to happen even if SCRAMed. That wouldn't happen here.

Anyway, I don't know exactly know what type of reactor is at Dimona. It could not even be used for electricity generation at all...

That's a fair point, but the reason for the flotilla was to undermine Israel's blockade of Gaza. Israel has no problem letting humanitarian aid through, as you illustrate above. The blockade is in place to stop the flow of weapons.

The best part of the story is how Hamas "claimed responsibility".

1. For their 3 rockets that did zero damage? I didn't launch any rockets today and me and Hamas inflicted the same amount of carnage on Israel.

2. Like there is any doubt that Hamas would be the dumbasses to try an "attack" like that.

Who started this recent round, again?

Three kids kidnapped and killed like dogs, and instead of stepping up like a responsible, sane governing agency, Hamas decides its time for a rocket attack?

That's all I need to know about Hamas.

If they want to start the fight in an Al Qaeda like way, it should destroy any credibility they have ever had with those people, they provide no chance for peace, period... Hamas is a dead end.

Wipe them out, go all Munich on them 24/7.

I heard an interesting discussion about the iron dome and how it works on the radio today.

The description was that this thing has the ability to detect a rocket just moments after it's launched, and based on the data they can triangulate where the rocket was launched from almost instantly and fire their own response. They are often shot from the roof of an apartment building or the courtyard of a mosque for example, so they can fire on that location right away if they choose.

The person breaking it all down said that they can tell pretty quickly where it's aimed at, where it's going to land and if it's going to land in the desert or someplace harmless they may just leave it alone, but that their interception rate when they decide to attempt was around 90%.

So Hamas has to fire 10 or more before 1 gets through, and even then they risk having an air strike back on where they fired it from. But to them, this is a win/win because if the rocket gets through they blow up Israeli civilians, and if they get a retort then they get footage of buildings blown up or civilian casualties of their own to publicize, and it galvanizes their own people against Israel.

I think it was 3 Jews kidnapped and killed (one of whom was a US citizen), and then someone kidnapped and killed one palestinian in response, and then Hamas responded to that with the rocket attacks. (right?)

And Obama asked the UN to tell Israel to be nice and then had a beer and played some pool before he had a fund raiser and played golf.

i could be misremembering, but i think the two things weren't connected at first...

some splinter offshoot from hamas had been lobbing a few missiles and israel was making air strikes at the launch sites for awhile...

then the kidnappings and murders, then large scale attacks by isreal followed by large numbers of hamas rockets eliciting an even greater intensity of attack and counterattack - classic escalation by both sides...

damn good idea, cuts down on civilian casualties but doesn't give the firing team time to get their equipment out...

from what i've read, iron dome transmits the launch site location to the drones and/or other aircraft to initiate a strike, all in a matter of seconds...
