Could Lightning Have Caused Rocket To Fire At Be’er Sheva?


Defense establishment says rocket strike which destroyed Be’er Sheva home may have been triggered by lightning strike on Gaza.


Israel’s political establishment, in light of the assessment in the defense establishment, has admitted that it is possible that the rockets fired at the city of Be’er Sheva Wednesday morning were caused by a lightning strike.

A video has surfaced on social media showing lightning striking in Gaza several seconds before the rockets were launched.

One of the rockets struck a home in Be’er Sheva, injuring a number of people and destroying the house. The possibility of a lightning strike being the culprit may have been a factor in Israel not striking back to the provocations with a stronger show of force.

  1. But why were those rockets engaged for deployment to begin with? I don’t have rockets in my back yard! Do you? Do any rational people? Does any sovereign nation have rockets all ready in launching position so that if lightning strikes they’re off!
    That, in my book, is guilt by association!
