Guards at luxury building bar shelter-seeking residents

Residents of the Givat Amal Bet neighborhood in Tel Aviv attempt to enter the luxury Yoo building for shelter as a siren rings out, but security guards bar them from entering, Channel 2 reports.

Among those approaching the building and requesting entry are a man and his baby, and they too are turned away.

The area is said to lack local fortified areas, leaving many residents without shelter.

“We’re 600 residents without shelter,” resident Bruriah Ben-David tells Globes.

After approaching the IDF Home Front Command, Givat Amal Bet residents are instructed to run to a school in the neighborhood — a 15-minute walk away.
