Western Galilee council head says tourism sites evacuated, residents told to stay close to reinforced rooms

Moshe Davidovich, head of the Mateh Asher Regional Council in Western Galilee, says beaches and other tourism areas have been evacuated from Rosh Hanikra to Moshav Bustan Ha’Galil, and residents told to stay close to rooms reinforced against rocket fire.

He complains, however, that many Western Galilee residents don’t have reinforced rooms to shelter in from rocket fire, and urges the government to belatedly allocate the necessary resources.

Meanwhile, Alik Kaplan, from Moshav Betzet in the Western Galilee, tells Channel 12 that the building he uses to store agricultural equipment was hit in the rocket attack and its contents destroyed.

This was one of the incoming rockets that Iron Dome didn’t intercept, he says.

He notes that his sister and her family live in a house 50 yards from where the rocket struck.
