Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi visits wounded in hospital.
We always hear about the "strong home front." Sderot has been dealing with rocket fire for years - is the city able to cope with the barrage of missiles for much longer?
On April 16, 2001, the first Kassam rocket was fired at the city of Sderot. Since then, for over 13 years, the "drip" of rockets has not ceased. It's a complex reality, which no country can allow itself.
Nevertheless, Sderot residents are Zionistic, patriotic souls. It is a very close-knit community, with unique mental strength, that sets an example to all citizens of Israel. Sderot residents love their city and are proud to live here - they do not break in the face of terrorist threats. This doesn't mean that there aren't any difficulties. It doesn't mean that the residents are not afraid, particularly the children. Of course this complex security situation has many implications; but when you examine the impact it has had over the years, you find that it didn’t cause any kind of mass exodus from the city. On the contrary. Sderot is growing and developing, despite all the hardships.
