Your daily connection to the Land of Israel



VIDEO: Living on the Gaza Border

Every day, Israelis living in Southern Israel, close to the border with Gaza, fear for their lives and their children’s lives because of rockets sent from Gaza to Israel. During conflicts, these communities hear dozens of sirens throughout the day and night warning them of incoming rockets, and then the explosions of rockets and mortars over their homes and streets. Many have only seconds to get to shelter. In this video, filmed after Operation Protective Edge last summer, Israelis share their first-hand accounts of the fears and dangers of living near the Gaza border. “I’m not strong, I’m afraid,” says one woman simply. “But I can’t forget that this is my home.”
