Iranian Weapons and Drones Monitor

Iranian weapons continue to find their way into the hands terrorists and other rogue states whether it’s alleged an missile factory in Sudan or drones in the hands of Hezbollah. The sheer numbers of weapons involved and their increasing killing power is turning this into a very serious problem. Today’s low intensity conflict could develop into something extremely intense if (ok, when) a larger war breaks out in the region.

With this is mind we’ve rolled out a new Iranian Weapons Monitor that tracks Iranian missiles and conventional weapons, Iranian drones, Iranian-made Hezbollah drones, and discussions about new Iranian weapon announcements. Subscribers will find it in their Topics menu.

Monitoring Rocket Strikes on Israel

Subscribers will find a new Rocket Strikes on Israel Monitor in their Topics menu. This tracks Gaza, Hamas, and official Israeli military tweets on the topic. Of course, this has been an ongoing problem but things could be heating up:

An Israeli military spokeswoman, said 79 projectiles had been fired at Israel and that the Iron Dome system had intercepted eight of them. She said several homes had been damaged by Palestinian rockets.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is seeking a renewed mandate in Israel’s Jan. 22 election, visited an Iron Dome anti-missile battery near the southern city of Ashkelon on Wednesday and threatened stronger Israeli military action in Gaza.

“We did not choose this escalation, nor did we initiate it, but if it continues, we are prepared for a much wider and deeper operation,” he said, pledging to press on with “targeted attacks” against militants preparing to fire rockets.
