IDF: Better to be an Israeli in a Shelter than a Gazan

The IDF spokeman has responded to the repeated Red Alert sirens and Civil Defense calls to enter shelters in southern Israel on Thursday morning, heard on the radio and in the affected cities while these newsbriefs are being written and reported in realtime.

"Difficult as it is, an Israeli going into a shelter this morning is much better off than a Hamas terrorist running for his life in Gaza," he said, adding words of encouragement to the civilians subjected to repeated siren warnings.
