As the IDF sends troops to the Gaza border in fears of heightened violence after a terrorist rocket destroyed an Israeli home, those in the home are thanking God that no one was killed. The Jerusalem Post’s Tovah Lazaroff reports that the owner of the home says, “I nearly lost my family”:

Luck and miracles saved the seven members of the Wolf family from certain death, when a rocket destroyed their home in Moshav Mishmeret just before 6 a.m.

“I nearly lost my family,” said Robert Wolf, as he stood outside the shell of his house, on a tree-lined street with single family homes in the middle of the country, close to Kfar Saba.

“If we had not gotten to the bomb shelter in time, I would now be burying all my family,” said Wolf, who immigrated to Israel from England with his wife Susan. “That is two grandchildren, one 5 months old, one 2 years old. That would be my third child, with his wife, my wife, myself and my youngest daughter. They would all have been dead if we didn’t do what we had been supposed to do.”

At Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba where most of the family was treated for light injuries, his son Daniel spoke with reporters about those fatal moments.

By chance, Daniel said, he had slept in the living room and heard the siren. He woke up his parents and younger sister, who were able to find shelter.

His mother, who was moderately injured, was between the kitchen and the safe room. She is undergoing treatment at Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikvah…
