Launched today, Israel military satellite in trouble

A Israeli military satellite, Ofek-11, has experienced unspecified problems soon after its launch today from a military base in Israel.

This has not been a good two weeks for Israel and space.

Sidenote: Take a look a the launch video at the link. Doesn’t that look almost exactly like the Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 launch system, with strongback and everything?
