What does 40km include?

Defense officials are now saying that Hamas in Gaza is on the verge of obtaining rockets that will have a range of 40 kilometers. They expect them to be obtained and operational within 2 years.

If those are just numbers to you, that area includes cities such as Beer Sheva, Ashdod, and Kiryat Gat within the range of these rockets. And it actually puts Bet Shemesh just outside of the range, but Zaharya, a little moshav right on the southern doorstep of Bet Shemesh, is within range.

So on the one hand, that might mean all you southerners might want to move to bet Shemesh and keep pushing up our real estate prices, but on the other hand that means that the next stage will likely include Bet Shemesh, jerusalem, Rishon Lezion, Holon, and more. So nobody is safe.

here is a map where I measured out the 40km, for your visual enhancement.


  1. where did you get that map? can you show a link please?

  2. abmaps.co.il
    I did the measurements using their measurement tool

  3. You can all come to Judea and Samaria and be safe with us. :-)
