    Israel's Iron Dome in action above Tel Aviv


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Yaron Samid, a software company CEO, is visiting Israel from New York for the summer with his family. The evening of July 18, he shot this video with his iPhone of what he said was two Hamas rockets being intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missiles.

    "There's a surreal normalcy that has set in after 10 days of this happening daily in Tel Aviv and throughout Israel. People are more sad and fed up than scared at this point. That's thanks to the sense of security you get from the [Iron Dome's] success in intercepting all of the Hamas rockets headed towards major cities in the heart of Israel."

    He went on to say that he and other Israelis place the blame "100 percent on the Hamas terrorists ... and not on Gazans/Palestinians in general. We feel they are the biggest victims of Hamas and hope a leadership more interested in their well-being than Israel's destruction will come into power soon. The feeling is that nothing will change until then."
