This story is told by some survivors of yesterday’s missile attack on the coastal city of Rishon LeZion.
Kfir Rosen, 26, a resident of the Rishon Lezion building struck by a Fajr-5 rocket on Tuesday, said he and his brother were standing on their porch when the Red Alert siren sounded.
“We wanted to see the rocket being intercepted, so we didn’t go into the shelter,” Rosen told Ynet. “The siren ended, so I thought everything was fine… until we heard a very loud blast. Rocks fell on us from the top floor.”
Liora and Ami Pinhas, a couple who live on the top floor of the building, said the fact that they survived the attack was “a miracle.”
“God saved us,” Liora said. “We heard the siren, went into the shelter, and then we heard a loud blast… when we came out, we could hardly open the door, and then we saw that our house was gone. Nothing was left.
“It’s an indescribable miracle that we’re alive,” she added.
It’s as simple as that, do everything to protect yourself.
And also thank God for every minute we are protected.
By the way, I copied this story from an article on the Times of Israel, who credited it to Ynet.
The most credit goes to Liora Pinhas. Thank you Liora for the gift of clarity to us today. May you be blessed to re-build your home and heal from the trauma you have suffered.
Meanwhile, in case you are wondering, we are all doing business as usual, as much as possible. I appreciate the contact from my readers and clients who have expressed concern for our well-being.
It seems that even when there is mortal danger, we still need to make a parnasa. Maybe more so. I’m still committed to helping people in this area to the best of my ability.
That’s why I’m glad I have this blog!
