When working with toys that go bang……

……safety is first, second, third, fourth, etc.

The incident took place as technicians working on the Iron Dome project hoisted several cases containing the Tamir rockets, used in the Iron Dome system.

The rockets were under maintenance by the crew when they fell from the vehicle to the floor of a bunker where they were stored.   The cases crashed to the ground, with several of the rockets sustaining significant damage, while other were not damaged at all.

Thankfully, nobody was hurt.


Here’s a novel idea:   Going forward, work on one at a time.

Bye-bye careers……

An IDF officer and an NCO were sentenced to 21 and 14 days in military prison (respectively) for failing to follow munition safety procedures, which resulted in the damage of 20 Iron Dome missiles, Ynet learned Sunday.

The IDF released the following statement: “At the end of the inquiry into the incident, the officer in charge of the docking station team and the noncommissioned officer who served as head of the technicians’ team were sentenced (to prison) by the commander of the Air Defense School. A corps inquiry into the incident is still ongoing.”
