Unfortunately this isafight that must be fought. Hundreds of thousands of rockets falling on civilians is not something that can be tolerated. As someone who bore the brunt of those rockets forawhileIcan tell you that they are not fun. It’s impossible to truly describe what it’s like to wake up at 3am to the sound of sirens and have to run forabomb shelter. These young men and women go off to defend more than one million Israeli civilians who live under the threat of rockets.
As someone who has had to live under the rocket fire of HamasIcan tell you that it’s no easy task. Comforting crying friends whilst waiting for the inevitable boom of the Iron Dome defensive shield or waiting for the ground to shake which signified rockets hitting streets or houses. It wasafrightening time in my life. This operation isanecessity to ensure the peace and quiet of Southern Israel.
