Just last Tuesday I blogged about two young sisters who were injured not far from my town when a Gaza rocket hit their Bedouin village.
Today the tin hut of another Bedouin family, this time near Dimona, took a direct hit when a salvo of five rockets was fired toward the Jewish city of Dimona.
Uda Lafi al-Waj, 32, was killed without warning.
His 3-month-old baby is in intensive care at Soroka Hospital with head wounds.
Two women and a little boy were lightly wounded and are also in the hospital.
Al-Waj is the second Israeli citizen killed by the rockets this week.
These photos of mine are from a different cluster of Bedouin dwellings in the Negev, further south.
Of the Negev's 200,000 Bedouin, some 80,000 are dispersed in what I guess could be called shanty towns which were built without permission and are unrecognized by the government.
Our Minister of Public Security paid a visit to the place where the al-Waj family was hurt today.
Residents demanded he give them some security by bringing in several concrete bomb shelters and a Red Alert siren within hearing distance.
In fairness I must admit that only 30% of all Israelis now under missile fire from Gaza have proper purpose-built shelters in or near their homes, or at least that is what one of the many Israeli talking "experts" said on TV.
Do take one minute to see the video of the Hamas Spokesman in Gaza promising Israeli Arabs that rockets will not be aimed at them--the height of hypocrisy or stupidity!
