'Final assaults' underway at Chabad House, hotels in Mumbai

The 'final assaults' are underway at Chabad House and at the hotels in Mumbai. You can watch streaming video (in English) here (Hat Tip: Charles). IBN just announced that six hostages have been murdered at the Oberoi Hotel where many Israelis were staying. Israel's foreign ministry said this morning that there may be as many as twenty Israelis in Chabad House and some 32 Israelis have not made contact with the foreign ministry (this was in an earlier edition of a JPost article that has now been taken down).

Reports indicate that Indian commandos rappelled onto the roof of Chabad House (also known as Nariman House) from a helicopter - you can watch video of that here. Here's a picture of commandos on the roof of the building:

You can also see images of what may be a Jewish prayer shawl being waved out the window of Chabad House here.

Here's a map of the area where the terror attacks took place.

And finally, here's video of the initial assault on Chabad (Nariman) House. Let's go to the videotape.

Thank you so much for this. There is information I had not seen, and the video of the assault on Chabad House, and the map, are especially helpful. I am still numb, and when I wake up in the AM, I am fearful of what I may see and hear.

Shabbat shalom.

The Indian boldness in assaulting the terrorists contrasts to the timidity and fecklessness of the Israeli police and army in dealing with terrorists. Its another lesson for Israel to learn. Don't hold back! A lot more lives would be saved if terrorists were treated as savages instead of folks one can parley with at the negotiating table. There is nothing to negotiate with those who deliberately target unarmed men, women and children. This is the way to deal with terror: root it out with force!
