Israel Police Officer Rushed to Sderot as Hamas Shot Her Leg
Stand for Israel | November 20, 2023
On October 7, Israel Police officer Sapir Cohen woke up to the blaring sound of rocket sirens, immediately sensing that something was amiss. As WhatsApp messages flooded in from her colleagues at the Sderot police station, describing terrorists opening fire at them, she wasted no time and swiftly made her way to them.
Departing from her home in Moshav Zimat in the Gaza border area, Cohen headed towards Sderot. However, as she neared the Gevim intersection, she came under heavy gunfire.
Determined, she pressed harder on the gas, clutching her weapon tightly. Despite the terrorists’ relentless barrage of bullets, she managed to evade them and reached the Sha’ar Hanegev intersection, where she faced a crucial decision on which path to take. Opting to continue straight, Cohen soon encountered a roadblock.
