Images from Sderot on the front lines

As Sderot on the Gaza border continues to face rocket fire Thursday, Times of Israel military reporter Mitch Ginsburg captures images from the long-suffering city.

Hundreds of rockets have hit Sderot in recent years, some of which sit in a collection in the city.

The town has been hit with 8600 rockets over past 10 years. The government has spent 500 million shekels protecting the city of 24,000 people, where each of the bus stops, for example, serve as bomb shelters.
