Another Sderot boy severely wounded by shrapnel

Another Sderot boy - this one aged 10 - was severely wounded by shrapnel today while doing what most normal boys his age take for granted: playing in the park.
According to initial assessments, the boy was playing with his friends in a playground when the alarm sounded. As he was running to take cover the Kassam landed nearby and he was hit in the shoulder by shrapnel.

Magen David Adom, who evacuated the boy to Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon, said that doctors may be forced to amputate part of his hand.
Recall what I said on Friday about the amount of time people have to run when the "color red" alarm goes off:
In addition to what I emphasized above, I'd like to point out that the current "color red" warning system purportedly gives 15 seconds to reach a shelter. It should be obvious to all of you that if the rocket takes only 9 seconds to get there, people really have 9 seconds and not 15. I also assume that the "color red" system has some reaction time. That's why we see reports like the one involving the two Twito brothers two weeks ago in which they said that the rocket hit before the "code red" alarm ever went off. The "code red" alarm is a useless farce.
I guess this kid is yet another 'sacrifice for peace,' eh Ehud? You clown!


I just heard a news report that indicates that part of the boy's arm was amputated by the shrapnel. Hashem yerachem (may God have mercy).

Not on the government of clowns. G-d needs to show them the exact opposite as punishment for the suffering inflicted upon innocent children.
