Obama should see how we live in Sderot, says mother whose house was damaged by rocket this morning

A woman whose home was slightly damaged by Gaza rocket fire in Sderot this morning has been on Army Radio. “Obama should come and see how we live here,” says Sara Hazizu. “We live in nice homes, but that means nothing. Really, we live in our security rooms. He should see how our 8-year-old daughter has to dash for the safety of the security room [when the rocket alarms go off].”

Security sources in Jerusalem agree that the rocket fire was “a message timed for Obama’s visit to show they’re still there” — hours before Obama goes to Ramallah. The sources do not believe Hamas was responsible. They think it’s unlikely Israel will respond, certainly not while Obama is here.
