BBC NEWS | Middle East | Israel satellite plunges into sea: “The Ofek 6 satellite fell into the Mediterranean sea near the southern city of Ashdod.

The satellite had been designed to expand Israel’s coverage of distant foes such as Iran, analysts said, and its loss is seen as a major setback.” (BBC)

No doubt this will make some of the neighbors a bit uneasy. The loss of the Ofek 6 satellite was reported as a very expensive dissapointment that will no doubt be used as additional fuel for anti-Isreali sentiment in the region.
