ASHKELON, Israel (RNS) — The moment Judy Spanglet heard the words “Color Red” come over Israel’s incoming-rocket alert system, she rushed into her apartment’s concrete-reinforced “safe room” and bolted the heavy door.
Moments later her building shuddered as a Grad rocket landed in a park across the street.
The rocket damaged the other side of Spanglet’s building but caused no injuries.
“I thanked God that we weren’t hit and, later, that no one was hurt,” said Spanglet, a resident of this seaside city eight miles from the Gaza border.
