For the past 6 days, over 2000 rockets were fired to Israel from the Gaza Strip. As a soldier serving in the area, I can tell that I can understand the struggle of the citizens living close to the border. There is no time to relax from the “Red Alert” sirens and the time to get to the shelters is 10 seconds at best.
Southern Israel is on fire. The realization that so many people are in danger and it is my friends and I how are standing up front protecting the country. So many places in the country are on fire and the situation between the Jewish and the Arab citizens in the country is getting worse.
All I can hope for is that we will be able to live peacefully together, if not completely then at least the way we were before.
I got to be home for the weekend, take a little rest from the craziness of what is going on. There are sirens in Tel Aviv, and now I know that there is no a safe place. To be honest, I want to go back to base as soon as possible and help my friends fight for peace and the safety of our citizens.
There is one thing I want to make clear: Israel is not attacking Gaza! Israel is DEFENDING herself from Hamas’s rockets and its terrorists, trying to cross the borders to harm Israeli citizens and soldiers. Hamas uses its own citizen to protect its own political interests. Don’t let the media fool you! Don’t blindly follow your favourite celebrities! Read more about the situation. Educate yourself, your friends and communities.
There are so many people doing so much to ensure safety and peace. Don’t take it for granted!
Help Israel and share the truth about what is going on! We all deserve to live in peace with our neighbours. Protect our families and friends. Both Israel and Gaza need our global community to understand what Hamas does with its power.
