The small summer camp in Sderot, filled with young children, escaped injury and death by the grace of a bomb shelter door.

The Color Red incoming rocket alert siren had been wailing off and on all night – in fact, all week long. The way to the shelter was a familiar one and this morning the drills and routines paid off.

A Qassam rocket fired by Gaza terrorists at around 8:30 a.m. slammed into the private home that doubles as a children’s summer camp. The rocket blasted part of the home into rubble, but left the shelter intact.

Just seconds before impact, the air raid siren had sent the young campers racing for the bomb shelter.

Not a moment too soon.

All the children made it to the shelter in time and were safely inside when the rocket slammed into the house.

“I heard the first ‘boom!’ Tami, the owner of the camp, told an Israeli radio interviewer. “It sounded close, but we are used to that. “The second one sounded much, much closer though.”

That second explosion was a Qassam hitting another private home and car nearby.

It’s not clear why the Iron Dome anti-missile system failed to intercept the two rockets.

A third Qassam exploded in the city as well. In fact, by 10:00 a.m. five rockets had already exploded in the western Negev.

The targeted children were treated for shock after their ordeal, although miraculously they were physically uninjured. Their future psychological condition remains to be seen. Their equally shocked parents have taken them home for the rest of the day – where they will likely be forced to make additional runs to their own private bomb shelters.

By 11:00 a.m., Gaza terrorists had fired 11 rockets and missiles at southern Israel, many causing serious damage to property in civilian communities and traumatizing the residents.

Late Wednesday night, a Qassam rocket barrage slammed directly into power lines, leaving the city of Sderot without electricity for at least 15 minutes. The rockets caused heavy damage to several structures and smashed into parked vehicles, shattering windows and more.

In a separate attack, a family was saved by its private bomb shelter after their home sustained a direct strike by another Qassam rocket the same night. The family, also accustomed to the nightly race for the shelter, managed to make it into the safe room in time — a victory that saved all of their lives. Two other rockets that landed in that same barrage exploded in open areas.

At least five rockets exploded in the area between midnight at 3:00 a.m., forcing residents of the western Negev and Gaza Belt communities to spend most — if not all — of the night again in their small private bomb shelters.

  10. Don’t look for truth where it doesn’t exist, Danielle. But with every missile the Pals increase misery for their own people and they are too stupid to realize it. They hate Jews so much they are willing to destroy themselves.

  11. Each day the news of violent deaths to the innocent victims of mass destruction continues. The victims are the collateral damage due to bombs/drones that know no real target. How will this all end in this mad mad world? The world has become a jungle. The hunter and the hunted each taking turns to kill. Who is the enemy of the people? Is it the lust for power and riches that man creates Hell on Earth? God will judge all.

  12. Isaac Manuel Chezes Fernandez says:

    It is time to take Gaza again ….they have probably thousands of rockets aiming at Israel ….

  13. Alan Kardon says:

    Do not let this continue. Gaza must be retaken and all Terrorist activity destroyed.

  14. Where is big mouth Netanyahu and Yaalon, ah yes talk talk talk talk talk………………….and nothing comes out.

  15. Cut all utilities, including water, to Gaza. Immediately, and permanently.
