A Shell Game

Tammuz Missile

They spent a lot of Money to make sure Nobody got hit.

Israel used an expensive precision missile containing advanced ‘electro-optic’ technology, an advanced form of the ‘Tammuz”; with guidance based on longer range ‘Spike’ navigation system from ‘RADS’.

Though the General claims that all and any Syrian battery firing into Israel may be targeted, and that they do not know if there were any Syrian casualties at the targeted artillery post they fired on, it is quite Obvious that they spent a lot of Money to make sure Nobody got hit.

Later IDF official spokesperson called it a warning.

After the shot, Israel also warned the United Nations to caution Syria to curtail the accidental firing by Syria — now amounting to seven or eight wayward shells — into Israel.

They stated that it is clear the Syrians were targeting other Syrians along the border, but that no more wayward shells would be tolerated.

    Sadly, since that warning yesterday, another errant shell from Syria fell in Israel. The mobile launcher from whence it came was immediately blown away by Israel with a direct hit.

    After Israel spent a fortune on the ultra-tech missile to make sure nothing got hit by the warning shot; when they let the field men shoot back at the next one, they used cheap low tech shots; I think it took 3 shots to kill the target. A Low value target, mostly because it wasn’t aiming at an Israeli town.

    This is the only country I ever heard of to spend a hi-tech to be sure to hit nothing; then use the low-tech to fight. (Do other people notice this stuff? I suppose the pros do.)
