"Nothing's changing, no one's doing anything, not the government, no one," Maya Iber, whose house was hit by a Kassam rocket fired from the Gaza Strip on Sunday morning, told Israel Radio. "Before 8 a.m. there was an alarm. A red alert. I was just about to go to work, and I turned back," she said. Iber works with children, the elderly and families in Sderot. She added that she does not have a safe room in her house, and so when the alarm sounded she sat downstairs in the safest place possible. She said that she heard the rocket land, and "thought it had landed somewhere next to the house… I opened my eyes… and saw it had hit my house… I heard the explosion." Iber's children, she said, no longer live in Sderot, and she was alone in the house. "The Kassams started falling in 2000, and one by one the children left Sderot." They have tried to convince her to leave too, she said, adding "I always tell them 'it'll be okay.' I love Sderot, and I have a nice house here." Though she's been in close vicinity to Kassams hitting Sderot before, she said that now, after a Kassam actually hitting her house, she'll consider leaving, as "nothing's changing."
