In the south, the Israelis measure the distance from Gaza in time, not meters. It is the time you need to find a shelter when the siren sounds. Overlooking Gaza is the town of Sderot, which in the minds of the Israelis is synonymous with poverty and danger. Sderot has, in fact, the highest number per capita in the world of shelters: 200. On this small city, the Muslims from Gaza fired 8,600 rockets. So far the Israeli government has invested $ 120 million in Sderot to provide the shelters.
