'Our Enemies Don't Understand That We Aren't Going Anywhere'

Last month, we were horrified to learn that a family home in central Israel was destroyed by a terrorist rocket launched from Gaza, an attack that injured seven, including two small children. But the story of the Wolf family, whose home was hit, has taken a turn for the better. Israel Hayom's Yaron Doron reports that despite the tragedy they suffered, this strong and resolute family has just welcomed a new member:

This Sunday, the Wolf family – whose home on Moshav Mishmeret in the Sharon region was destroyed by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip last month – welcomed their fifth grandchild, a girl.

“It’s such a delight, something wonderful amid all this mess. It gives us all the strength in the world,” grandfather Robert Wolf tells Israel Hayom.

Wolf is excited not only because of his new granddaughter, but because he sees his vines and strawberry tree starting to blossom.

“For me, this is life. I see it and I’m moved,” he says.

The family, who initially after the rocket hit moved in with Robert’s daughter Talia, have now rented an apartment. They spent the Passover seder with their next-door neighbors at Mishmeret.

“Emotionally, it’s really hard. We’re always thinking about what used to be. Susan, my wife, still his shrapnel in her head and doctors haven’t decided whether or not to take them out, whether or not they’re dangerous. She’s at the hospital for tests almost every day. She was wounded all over her body because she had her back turned,” Wolf says.

“She, like any good mother, took care that everyone made it into the safe room and didn’t manage to get inside herself. She was the most seriously wounded. This will be with us for a long time, but we have strength. She’s a very strong woman. The first thing she said in the hospital was, ‘We’re so lucky it landed on us, [since] we have a safe room, and not on the neighbors, who don’t.’ That’s amazing.”

Wolf’s son Daniel was the hero of the story...
