Southern Residents Remain Defiant After Rocket Attacks


In an interview Thursday, Haim Yellin, head of the Eshkol Regional Council, said that the latest round of rocket attacks on southern Israel will not interrupt the daily lives of residents. “We have never stopped our normal lives in the past, and will not do so now,” he told Channel Ten.

School, for example, is in session Thursday morning, despite the numerous rocket attacks on the region on Wednesday night. “If we had closed school every time we got hit by a rocket the twelfth grade students would still be in ninth grade,” he said.
