Sderot

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Meg visited the town of Sderot in the South of Israel, the frequent target of rocket and mortar attacks from Gaza. Over 9,000 have been fired at the area since 2001. There she met young people who described how the rockets and mortars affect their daily life. When a rocket is fired a siren is sounded to warn them and there is very little time to get to the bomb shelters. All public buildings have shelters, and bus shelters are constructed to provide protection. In their houses people are advised to shelter in the shower as the safest part of the house.

 

Following the invasion of Gaza there has been a significant reduction in attacks. However the locals fear that this is Hamas re-arming for a new onslaught. One young woman told us, “There is no silence in our souls.”
