Marcell Bar-On, whose family has lived near the Gaza border under the constant shelling of Kassam rockets since the attacks began almost seven years ago, sent me this e-mail in response to my post yesterday about the rocket that almost hit their house while her children were still sleeping:

We are fine but have been experiencing daily Kassam attacks (morning, noon and night) for the privilege of being on Hanukka school vacation this week. Also, I saw on the news that the IDF made an incursion into Southern Gaza today, which automatically means that we will soon experience an increase in the frequency and amount of Kassam bombs.

No sign yet of any funding from the government for safe rooms. Unbelievable! What can you do. We live in hope that one day we will be able to live a normal life again.
