Well, now that Yavne and Eshkol have been hit, rockets from the south of Israel continue to inch closer to Ben-Gurion International Airport and to Tel-Aviv.
The map below shows the shrinking space between the reach of rockets from the south and from the north, in the event that Hizbollah were to re-enter the fray from Lebanon.
The red dots indicate locations hit from the south or from the north, two years ago.
Meanwhile, talk has been quashed of rocket-launching potential from the Shomron (Samaria). If rockets were launched from Tul-Karem, 10 miles east of Netanyah, if would add an additional front to the war.
I was in Rehovoth last night and this morning. Some fighter jets could be heard, no doubt due to the proximity of the Israeli Air Force [IAF] base. Located just southeast of Rishon LeTzion on the map, it is in the "We're Next" range of cities (light blue, along with Yavne).
