US embassy warns American citizens inside Israel of probable missile/rocket attacks!

Iran is 7.5 Hours AHEAD of US east coast time.  That means at the publication of this story (11:54 am), it is 8;24 PM in Iran . . .  less than four hours from Tuesday.

Slain Iranian General Soleimani will be buried in his home town of Kerman, Iran, Tuesday.  Once he's in the ground, Iran retaliation is expected to commence in earnest.

Iran has over two-hundred-thousand (200,000) missiles.  Most short range, some intermediate range, few long range.

They have already taken 16,000 of those missiles out of storage and are preparing them.

There are about 30 American military bases in the Middle East, within range of Iranian missiles.  

Do the math: 16,000 missiles divided by about 30 bases is 500+ missiles per base.

The Iranians know the US has advanced missile defenses.  But those defenses CANNOT defend against five hundred missiles inbound at a single target.

American military forces will very likely be killed if any mass launches take place.

While the Iranian government calls the United States "the great Satan" their hatred for Israel is comparable in scale.  They call Israel "little Satan."

Therefore, it is likely that Israel will be struck by Iranian missiles as well.  As such, the US Embassy in Jerusalem has issued an ALERT to Americans in Israel about potential missile attacks:

 

 

Security Alert: U.S. Embassy Jerusalem (January 6, 2020)

 

Location:  Israel, Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza

Event:  Heightened Middle East Tensions

Heightened tension in the Middle East may result in security risks to U.S. citizens abroad.

Out of an abundance of caution, the Embassy strongly encourages U.S. citizens to remain vigilant and take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness, as security incidents, including rocket fire, often take place without warning.

In the event of mortar or rocket fire, a red alert siren may be activated.  Treat all such alerts as real; follow the instructions from local authorities and seek shelter immediately.  Know the location of your closest shelter or protected space.  U.S. government personnel and their family members may be restricted from traveling to areas affected by rocket activity, sirens, or the opening of bomb shelters.  For additional information on appropriate action to take upon hearing a siren or explosion, see the Israel Defense Forces Home Front Command website (link only available on devices within Israel) or view the Preparedness Information PDF.  U.S. citizens may also wish to download the free Israel Defense Forces Home Front Command application on Android or Apple devices to receive real-time security and safety alerts.  Free commercial applications, such as Red Alert: Israel, are also available.

The Embassy will continue to review the security situation and will provide additional information as needed.

A travel warning to Israel, following Soleimani’s assassination; including possibility of rocket fire that might take place without warning.

Also, Yesterday, US Embassy in Saudi Arabia issued a security alert for US citizens for "Heightened Risk of Missile and Drone attacks"

 

The US is presently moving an enormous number of troops into the Middle East; far more than publicly announced.

Flights that move troops are called CAMBER flights because that's their call sign.  Below shows a small inkling of CAMBER flights this morning:
