Portable Bomb Shelters in Southern Israel

Jul 13, 2012 at 07:17:37 AM

The good folks at United With Israel have once again donated portable bomb shelters to the besieged southern Israel, this time to a kindergarten in Nitzan near Ashkelon.

United With Israel is an enormous pro-Israel network with nearly 1.2 million Facebook subscribers.

Over 12,000 Kassam rockets have been fired into southern Israel in recent years, deliberately targeting Israeli civilians, causing chaos, destruction and death. Nearly one million Israeli citizens are within striking range of Gaza. An entire generation of children has been traumatized by the terror of ongoing rocket attacks.

These state-of-the-art, free-standing shelters provide safety for Israeli citizens as they go about their daily lives. They are built to prevent the penetration of bullets, shrapnel and missile fragments and can withstand direct hits. While building underground shelters can take months, these prefab units take only a few weeks to build and can be delivered and deployed immediately.

Imagine hearing a frightening siren and having 15 seconds to run for cover. Although these shelters cannot provide Israeli communities with peace, they provide both safety and peace of mind.
