Hamas appears to be in the driver’s seat when it comes to making decisions on when and how and whether or not a ceasefire can and will be reached between Israel and Gaza terrorists, and that fact combined with the weekend’s barrage of deadly rocket fire has badly traumatized some of the Israelis living close to the Gaza border.
At least, that’s what’s happening with many of the residents living on the southern frontier in the city of Sderot, where a number of rockets fired over the weekend managed to land direct hits. One exploded at a private home, wounding four family members, including two teenage girls and their mother and father. Neighbors were traumatized but not physically wounded.
