A September Sunday in S'derot!

Sunday morning terror to open the new week .... Two rockets were launched at Southern Israel this morning. One struck the roof of a house in Netivot (over 26,500 residents) and destroyed it completely. Seven civilians were hurt in this attack. Due to the threat of rockets, school has been cancelled for the children of Be'er Sheva and Ashdod because of missile attacks. How many countries this week around the world are cancelling school because of falling projectiles?   Then blaming those on whom the rockets rain????

Two Iranian made Grad missiles were fired overnight by 'palestinian' terrorists in Gaza to Southern Israeli town of Netivot.  One hit this house in Netivot, destroying it ~ thankfully no-one was inside. The residents heard the warning sirens (15 seconds) and got out in time ......   “This was a miracle,” said Grad missile attack survivor Pinny Azoulai,  who was saved by an early-warning siren and a quick escape from his bedroom. The rocket slammed into one home and damaged a neighbouring house.  Azoulai told Army Radio on Sunday morning that he was sleeping at the time of the attack. 

“I heard the siren and jumped out of bed and then ran to the entrance of the house,” He then decided he would be better protected in the bathroom, a move which may have saved his life.    “Just as I entered the bathroom, there was a loud explosion. My heart still is beating fast,” he said. He was surrounded by the debris of the collapsed house, which was a total loss. Azoulai still suffers from ringing in his ears.   His brother Yuval said, “His escape was a miracle. We have lived in this reality for a long time," he added. “This was a direct hit on the house, and we will not be living here for a long time.”

Ten people were treated for shock and physical injuries in the missile strikes on Netivot and later on Be’er Sheva, where the rocket fell in an open area.  Three people in Be’er Sheva suffered injuries when they fell while running to bomb shelters. Seven people, four in Be’er Sheva and three in Netivot, were treated for shock, and three people were evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva, according to Magen David Adom.   Schools in Netivot and Be'er Sheva were cancelled for children today.   Fifteen Seconds is not enough time to save yourself .... especially if you do not live near a Shelter.  Lot's of apartment blocks do not have them and the neighbourhood shelter is most often more than 15 seconds away.   What happens if you are pregnant, have toddlers or babies, are elderly or disabled.  Then it is under the stairs or crouching in a basement, which is often more than 15 seconds away too.    I'll tell you what happens ..... you cry out loudly to Ha'Shem.  You pray.  There is no other choice.  Could you evacuate your home in 15 seconds or less, or find effective cover in this time.  Could you make this ...... Olympic Sprinters can't!!

This is life in Israel.  And we are demonized for it.  Told we are the monsters.   Would you be happy to live like this villified by the world.  What can you do??? ..... Support Israel.  Always.
Say Tehillim
(Psalms) against Tillim (Rockets).  In the Ancient Armies of Eretz Yisrael Torah Scholars preceeded them to victory reciting Tehillim.  We too can replicate this today ..... Please say the following tehilim  6, 20, 46, 51, 70 and 120.  Todah!!
