Sderot: Day Ten

by MC

A missile hit about 50 yards down the road from us. We are all OK, but a bit shaken up.

The electricity is out, but I have the router on a UPS.

There was a volley of three; all exploded within 150 yards. Today we have had about four volleys go over. This was the only one that came close.

I hope to get some photos later.

Sending this before the batteries fail.

MC lives in the southern Israeli city of Sderot. For his previous essays, see the MC Archives.

  1. MC:

    Thanks for your reports from the “front line”, ie your home, they are much appreciated, and I hope that you will be safe.

    I was interested to read about your time serving on HMS Hampshire. One day we must discuss the Sea Slug missile, which has always fascinated me. A much better missile to talk about!

  2. Yea, it was an impressive brute, on a test firing we got a physical hit on a sub-sonic drone as about 15 miles.
