More from the New York Times:

“Let Obama come and see how people live,” Sara Haziza, whose yard in Sderot was the site where one of the rockets exploded Thursday morning, said on Army Radio. “We build houses and villas but we live inside a cage, in a protected room.”

“Let Obama come and see how an eight-year-old girl has to run to a protected room that is completely open,” she added, “and how I can’t close the door of the protected room.”

Only yesterday Pres #Obama visited an Iron Dome Battery. This morning, the residents of Sderot got a reminder of why #Israel needs it.
