Life Under Fire

Beersheba residents go about business-as-usual, despite the continuous threat of rocket fire emanating from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, which is located approximately just 40 kilometers away from the major Israeli city. Albert, a retired 67 year-old who has spent his entire life in Beersheba said that the rockets – although frightening – wouldn’t scare him away from his city. “I’ve had run to the shelter many times,” he said. “I’m scared, but I’m especially scared for my children, for my grandchildren.” He added, “I’ll never leave this city. This is my city and all my family lives here.”
