Katyusha lands in Aqaba
Authorities examining whether rocket, believed to be fired from Sinai, was aimed at Eilat. No injuries reported in incident Ahuva Mamos
Attempt to strike Eilat from Egypt? A Katyusha rocket apparently fired at the southern city on Thursday exploded in the Aqaba industrial zone in Jordan.
There were no reports of injuries. The report was received by the Eilat Municipality from Jordanian sources.
Another rocket was fired, apparently a 107 mm one, and landed in the Red Sea. Jordan is searching for a third rocket.
Residents of Eilat heard an explosion Thursday morning, and hours later, it became apparent that the source of the noise was a Katyusha rocket, apparently fired from Sinai, which passed over the city and exploded in Aqaba.
The Counter-Terrorism Bureau recently issued a travel advisory warning Israelis in Sinai to leave the peninsula immediately, due to terror threats.
More than 20 terrorist organizations, most of which are connected with Global Jihad and al-Qaeda, operate in the area. Others are of a local nature and deal mostly in smuggling. The main objective of all these groups is to wrest power from the Egyptian government and cause the regime severe economic damage, mainly in tourism.
In December 2005, Katyusha rockets were fired at Eilat from Jordan. One of the rockets exploded at a junction near the Eilat airport. No one was injured, but a vehicle was damaged in the incident.
Almost simultaneously, two more rockets were fired at an American battleship docked in the Port of Aqaba and at the Aqaba military hospital. One Jordanian soldier was killed and another was injured in that incident.
They must be frigging idiots if they're wondering that.
I would recommend that one NOT calculate rocket trajectory with an abacus.
8th Century highly secret technology of reading camel dung splatter, much further advanced than abacus.
Range targeting from mobile camel launchers can be optimally achieved by acquiring coordinates from triangulation vectors of Dubai, Mecca and downtown Tehran. With these superior interpolations, successful target acquisition and elimination is guaranteed no matter what we hit.
Oh Yeah...I forgot the muzzies invented Algebra and Calculus, so they should have no problem with trajectories.
“Almost simultaneously, two more rockets were fired at an American battleship docked in the Port of Aqaba and at the Aqaba military hospital.”
Two things here - 1) I’m unaware of any US battleships that aren’t currently museums (unfortunately as the impact of a VW bug among the enemy has it’s advantages). 2)When are people going to wise up and admit that when someone starts aiming for a hospital or other sanctuary then all bets are off?
Apparently a long repression of well, everything has stunted any inate abilities for rational thought.
Not sure these poor devils can figure out “a squared + b squared = c squared”.
