Israeli Ambassador’s Phone Alert of Incoming Hamas Rocket Attack Goes Off During TV Interview

by Andrew Johnson

Viewers got a chance to witness the Red Alert app – which informs Israeli citizens that they have minutes to find cover before an incoming rocket attack – work in real-time as the app alerted the Israeli ambassador to the United State of the latest attack by Hamas.

Part way through his conversation with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Ambassador Ron Dermer’s Red Alert app went off about an incoming attack in Ashkelon, a city in the southern part of the country.
