A short Twitter thread from Lenny Ben David, slightly edited:
She woke to sirens in middle of night, ran upstairs to grab 3 sleeping kids from 3 bedrooms, ran downstairs; got all into bomb shelter and shut the blast door just as the rocket hit.
Commentators say that had there been casualties, #Israel would be at war.
BTW, she’s a Ethiopian Jew.
“I heard the alarm,” she told the media. “I thought it was dream. When I came to my senses, I hurried to take the children to the security room. I was trembling and I was afraid.”
Her sister Ora said that Tamano was sleeping on the first floor, ran up the stairs, and woke her three sons, ages eight, 10 and 12, who all slept in different rooms.
“Two of them didn’t want to wake up and she had to drag them out of bed,” Ora said.
The two-story home, located on a small cul-de-sac off a main road, was completely destroyed.
“I no longer have a home,” she said. “The memories are gone. Inside the house, the closets were stuffed with all kinds of things – and now there’s nothing left.”
Israeli government agencies have lots of experience in such cases, unfortunately.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
