Grad rockets land in western Negev, four treated for shock – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News.
This headline greeted me this morning. First thing this morning I heard a crack of thunder, a boom that resonated but so clearly wasn’t the boom of a qassam. Then, this headline. A qassam (rocket) was fired from Gaza last night, and mortar fire hit Netivot (where I was studying) and Ofakim, the city 15 minutes from here.
Peace is felt except for the moments which remind us that war is a constant undertone.
