Gaza Border

Courage and Determination
along Israel's Gaza Border

This website is dedicated to those individuals who live in the Sderot, Israel, area, and are within range of the thousands of rockets fired from Gaza in the past several years.

This website was created in 2008 and taken offline in 2018.
Because of the recent Hamas atrocities I am putting this back online for historical purposes.
Israelis have suffered attacks from Hamas for many years.

Tourists look out over a local reservoir into the Gaza Strip. The smokestacks in the distance are in Ashkelon.
To the left is the Gaza city of Beit Hanun..

This tethered blimp has equipment to detect the launch
of kassam rockets and set off the "color red" alarm.

Gaza border patrol
This telephoto shot of a section of the border between Israel and Gaza shows
Israeli jeeps on patrol on a day that Hamas threatened to bring huge crowds up to the border fence.
Only a few turned out for the demonstration. This location is about a mile from Sderot.
