A man inspects the damage to his house caused from a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip, in the Southern Israeli city of Sderot, near the border with Gaza on March 25, 2019.

Hamas rocket fire made a direct hit on a home in Sderot on Monday night but Heaven reached out and extended its protection to the resident within, who remained unharmed despite the destruction.

“I was at home alone when I heard the Red Alert siren and ran to the bomb shelter,” said Sderot resident Shlomo Moskowitz, who spoke with Israeli reporters about the rocket attack on his home.


“I heard a loud boom and saw the house was filled with smoke,” he said, adding that he stayed in the shelter for about ten minutes before leaving.

“When I went into my son’s room, I saw the missile with its warhead intact on the floor there, unexploded.

“We had a great miracle.”

Moskowitz said he went downstairs and called police, and security forces arrived at the house. “We did what needs to be dome. Everything will be fine,” he said.

“My home was damaged a few years ago [also] — but we’re strong; we have no other country. We will continue to live here. No one will break us.”

Moskowitz added that he trusts Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to deal with the present security situation, and with Hamas.
