Rocket Fire Increases Near Gaza Strip
The Media Line – Artist Shosh Segal is busy preparing her art gallery for the expected rush of tourists heading to southern Israel for the annual wild flower blooming in the coming weeks. The hills are already bursting with vibrant colors of anemones and turmoses, but reality has often found a way of spoiling plans, especially since she lives just a mile from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
“A Qassam rocket fell here last week. But we are given a warning so I can cope with that. What frightens me more are the mortars. They come without any warning at all,” Segal said in her studio of paper mache art at Kibbutz Kfar Azza.
