Hill 24 Doesn’t Answer

A report by Martin Fletcher on NBC was extremely painful to watch.

After sirens go off warning of an imminent attack, Israelis run for the bomb shelter. One man doesn’t make it and is found dead just meters away from the shelter.

He is lying on the ground some distance away from the cameras and the shelter.

A woman standing at the entrance to the shelter is screaming into her cell phone to her husband, “where are you, where are you, why don’t you pick up.”

Off in the distance, we soon find out all too well where he is.

The ringing of a cell phone continues unanswered next to the body.
