Israel365 News’ interview with Akiva Mark Powers in Ashkelon was cut short as the Code Red Siren went off, sending Powers scrambling for the bomb shelter. Over 1,000 rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza since Monday.
Powers discusses the current state of the residents of Ashkelon telling Berkowitz that they have 10-15 seconds to enter a bomb shelter once the red alert siren is sounded off. Powers is a new immigrant who recalls that when he finally left his apartment, he immediately ran back inside his home after hearing yet another siren. Powers has been living in Ashkelon for over a year.
