Now that Hamas can officially reach Tel Aviv with there medium range missiles, residents of that city may soon find themselves seeking shelter.

In Nitzan, the government finally decided to set up a protective bunker system for the Gush Katif refugees... sort of.

To me it looks like sewer pipes with a concrete barrier set up at both ends.

It probably looks that way to me, because that is what it is.

Obviously, they aren’t going to bring in thousands of concrete sewer pipes into Tel Aviv, that would be too difficult. I assume they will just open up the main sewers and tell the residents to go hide inside.

By the way, if you zoom in on the picture, you will figure out why these sewer pipes aren’t rolling away. They stuck some wood blocks underneath.

Gush Katif Evacuee Rachel Saperstein, living in Nitzan, wrote a piece about it in the Jerusalem Post.

is that actually likely to protect anyone?

The army says the pipe won't survive a direct strike on it, but a near miss should be fine.

As for the people inside...
