    Allon Shuster explaining some of the situation. On the satellite map he shows that the terrorists fire the Qassam Rockets from very densely populated areas. In those areas it is almost impossible to attack the terrorists, without making civil victims.  


Shaar Hanegev High School


  • Image017:

    Provisional shelters on the schoolyard around Shaar Hanegev High School, where a rocket exploded in an (empty) class room.

  • Image018:

    The blue color of this class room means that the room is sheltered. Today this room is empty, because the students have examinations today. Other locations have been arranged by the management, because students may have concentration problems under the threat of new rockets.

  • Image019:

    Shahat (left) and Ohad are students on Shaar Hanegev High School. Like 70% of the students from Shaar Hanegev High School, Shahat and Ohad live in an area which isn’t in the range of Qassam Rockets. While the quality of the education is high, Ohad’s parents would like to register him in another school. The teachers are wondering how many students will return next year.
