This Missile base was siezed by Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood recently in Syria and rests overlooking the nation state of Israel

When looking back at the missile attacks against Israel last month by the Hamas Terrorist organization in Gaza, it is hard not to make a few observations.
As rapidly as the unsolicited attacks began, they ended in the same fashion. We must ask ourselves, what was achieved by Hamas?
There are certainly many valuable pieces of information that were inadvertently released by Israel to their enemies during Operation Pillar of Defense. Among these were Israel’s plan of response to a missile attack. This is understandable though because in any act of defense against your aggressor, your defensive posture will be observed. This is almost completely unavoidable, especially with the technology that exists today. And, speaking of which… technology, namely military technology, played a major role in Israel’s ability to defend herself from the islamic aggression, just a few kilometers away.
Since Iranian drones were spotted in the area, it is safe to assume that they were sitting back and taking notes in this brief proxy war on their behalf. So, let’s take a look at some of the other ‘available information’ that was literally “ripe for the picking” by any observer on the sideline.
In the process of responding to the barrage of missiles launched from Gaza, Israel was forced into utilizing their new, state of the art “Iron Dome Missile Defense System.” In doing so, Israel essentially relinquished the locations of their interceptors. This system operates on a series of digital signatures and transmissions between detectors/receivers and interceptors. These digital transmissions (ie.) signals are sent out through the air and can easily be received by anyone with a digital receiver. Such as, a drone flying just out of sight. Embedded in these digital signatures would have been a host of valuable information to any enemy.
Hamas and anyone else paying attention were also able to discern one of the limitations of the Iron Dome Missile Defense System. When Hamas launched their missiles at a slower, more normal pace, the accuracy of Israeli interception was quite high. Although, as Hamas increased their launch frequency to a more rapid, simultaneous barrage, the Iron Dome System, while successfully intercepting one incoming missile would allow two or three to go by. Rest assured, this fact did not go unnoticed.
With the current instability of the middle east, Israel’s enemies at every border and Iran’s self-admitted plan to ‘annihilate Israel off of the map’, It is not hard to believe or envision a scenario in which Hamas was simply acting on the request or orders of a higher entity. When month after month of failed negotiations usually result in a continued, never-ending attack on Israel, this time was not the case. Perhaps the data collection mission was achieved.
Please Pray for Israel !
