Reports of sirens near the city of Dimona and explosions in central Israel represent the sum of all fears that people go to bed with and hope not to wake up to. But that happened early Thursday morning when a Syrian missile landed near Dimona, and Israel retaliated by striking in Syria. The initial reports came out at around 2 a.m. They began with news of sirens in southern Israel and foreign media reports of those sirens being near Israel's secretive nuclear reactor.

The Syrian missile landing near Dimona illustrates how dangerous this battle is. Had it struck inside the reactor compound, Israelis would be waking up to a very different reality. They go along with Iranian media reports of the sirens and an explosion in Israel that could be heard as far away as the Gaza Strip, West Bank, Jerusalem and Modi’in. Reports on the Shahab Arabic news site also said that Bedouin communities near Dimona had heard sirens and explosions. They were also heard in the hills of Hebron. The unusual number of reports and their extent represent a serious and unusual incident. It comes on the heels of Iranian media claiming that an explosion in central Israel two days ago may have been “deliberate.” Likely a propaganda story, it nevertheless goes along with another Fars News report about Iran using a drone to conduct surveillance of a US carrier.
