Israel, 22:50 - The holiday atmosphere here was rudely interrupted with the Red Alert sirens chasing everyone to the bomb shelters. The Iron Dome missile defense system battery stationed near here thwarted the two missile attacks. We were taken by surprise for in recent weeks, things have been calm in the south of Israel. If anything, there's tension in the north with Russia now openly operating in Syria, helping Assad and his allies Iran and Hizbulla, a situation that could easily turn into a confrontation with Israel.
Right now, I'm reassuming my battle station - right here in the Brody succa. Moadim l'simcha - happy holiday!
