HAMAS Reveals Photos of R160 Rockets in Gaza set for launch; Can hit Haifa! !
See bottom update (Subscribers area)
Yesterday, Wednesday August 7, beginning at about noon eastern US time, Arabs in the Gaza Strip began firing Rockets and Mortars into Israel. Over 150 Rockets and dozens of Mortars were launched, damaging homes, businesses and landing near school playgrounds in Israel. The attacks continued all day, into the night, and OVERNIGHT! All parties to any ceasefire agreement, told the UN and Egypt the ceasefire is over. There is now talk of "war."
Video from Israel showed small school kids panicking as they ran toward school bomb shelters on the playground; shelters which were already full with other terrified children, leaving kids around age 5 or 7, outside and exposed to the deafening blasts.
This round of rockets brought new horror: Blast Fragmentation Warheads, designed to hurl shrapnel on impact. For the first time, Israelis began seeing cars and homes penetrated by shrapnel, not just damaged or set on fire by such rockets.
Several Israelis have been wounded. At least two Pregnant women went into fear-induced Labor. Homes and cars have been set on fire by flaming kites and Molotov balloons.
Israeli Defense Force (IDF) troops came under repeated Sniper fire and overt gunfire.
The IDF and the Israeli Air Force (IAF) were directed by the government to respond in defense of Israel. Heavy air strikes against targets in northern, western and southern Gaza hit numerous targets, sending giant plumes of flame and debris into the air with deafening booms heard for miles.
Still the fanatics in Gaza did not stop. Overnight, more barrages of rocket attacks took place. Red Alert warning sirens blared repeatedly inside Israel, warning frightened citizens of incoming rockets - giving some only 15 seconds to get to shelter before the rockets struck.
The Totals as of 10:30 PM EDT last night:
- Over 150 rockets fired from Gaza
- 2 Rockets strike Sderot homes
- 1 injured
- 25 Rockets intercepted
- Long range missiles being used
- Thousands of Israeli families sleeping in shelters
- IAF bombs over 100 Gaza targets
- At least 3 dead
- 20 injured
All off the items above were reported as they took place yesterday, by the Hal Turner Radio Show, HERE. NOT ONE "mass-media" outlet in the US covered these developments! ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, FOX News, UPI, New York Times, Washington Post . . . . seemed totally devoid of even a mention!
Even this morning (Thursday) it seems as though only CNN gave these events any coverage at all, with a tiny snippet "Israel and Hamas exchange fire in sudden Gaza escalation." The ONLY place the general public is getting any coverage of substance, is right here at HalTurnerRadioShow.com and on my International High-Frequency radio show last night.

Despite being politely asked for an occasional donation, for years, Tens-of-Thousands of visitors to this site took whatever was published and never once donated to help pay the costs. This endangered the existence of the site because I have to PAY for the data transfer for each story viewed by each visitor. Monthly costs kept going up while revenue didn't cover the costs. That doesn't work in the real world.
While SOME of my articles will remain free to the public, more and more will be subscriber-only. It HAS to be this way to cover the costs of this site.
