Just as volunteers arrived to bring gifts to Israeli children affected by rocket fire, red alerts rang out, sending innocent people running for their lives.

The terror group Islamic Jihad fired hundreds of rockets at Israel from Gaza last week, with Israeli communities once again under fire on a near-daily basis. The Palestinians launched their recent barrage of rockets in the wake of Israel’s assassination of terror mastermind Baha Abu al Ata.

For Israeli children experiencing rocket fire, life is tense, fearful, and tenuous. Thanks to the Israeli organization Boomerang, these children were able to experience a bit of joy during this difficult time.
