The following video, released by the Israeli Foreign Ministry, is a good demonstration of what residents of southern Israel have to go through in the face of endless rocket attacks from Gaza.

The video shows an elderly lady who has trouble walking, while having only 15 seconds - and no elevator - to get to a protected space when a siren goes off.

This is the reality that men and women living in Israel (and not only in the south) face every day, sometimes ten times a day.
