IDF has called up some units. They did this a few months back, and then again just a few days ago.
They also have deployed Iron Dome in more than one area. In Sinai, and around some major cities.
It was most likely a couple of Iron Dome units Walfred's brother saw. It takes several missiles to make up one unit. It is 20 rockets in three pods to make one unit. That means it is ten units he can see.
If armor units are moving up, that is more worrisome. When infantry moves up with the armor, it is time to batten down the hatches. Large numbers of people can not stay in the desert for long periods of time, without a huge supply train. Israel doesn't fight that way. It is lightening warfare that the IDF is known for. They have too many enemies to move slowly.
I am waiting to hear back from my friends, or hear they are not there.
