      Gaza Expellees Get Warning Siren, Still No Shelter

      Hundreds of Jewish families living in the temporary village of Nitzan have begun hearing the “Color Red” warning system, which has been put into use in coastal towns near Ashkelon.  However, residents of the village continue to live in caravans, and have no sheltered space to run to in case of an attack.

      “There is no protection in the area and no option to hide.  We are exposed to fire and to danger with no possibility to seek protection anywhere,” a spokesman for the community said Saturday.  A rocket that landed on a caravan last week destroyed the caravan completely, he added.
