When Rockets Hit Home
My name is Adele. I live on Kibbutz Nirim, about a mile from the Gaza Border in the western Negev Desert. We have been under rocket and mortar attack for over two months, as well as living with the threat of tunnels of terror.
This morning, Kibbutz Nirim was hit by a barrage of 7 incoming rocket fire. One of the devils hit about 3 meters from my house, riddling it with shrapnel. Luckily for me, I was in my saferoom at the time. Counting explosions, hoping nothing will hit me, my friends in the community, our homes. My luck started to run out yesterday morning., a fact which came to me very loud and very clear.
Little did I know at the time that the worst was yet to come.
