QOTD: "In order to protect densely populated cities like Tel Aviv, Israel’s fifth iron dome battery was deployed two months ahead of schedule today — and it’s a good thing too. Sometime this afternoon while I was sitting in my room trying to write a paper for school (but really reading about incoming rocket attacks) the sirens in Tel Aviv went off.

My first thought? I don’t remember just clicking on a YouTube video of rockets, did I? My second: Oh my God that’s coming from outside! I immediately grabbed my keys and phone and ran out the door to the concrete stairwell where most of my neighbors were already standing.

“Is this real?!” I said to my neighbor.

“Yep, just stand right here and wait,” he said.

I don’t have a bomb shelter in my apartment, so we were told by the government to go to the stairwells that are often built similarly. I waited with shaky hands for the sirens to stop going off, and we all waited for the boom — whether it be a hit or the iron dome striking down the Iranian made Fajr-5 missile. I don’t think my heart has ever beat so quickly.

The whole time I was standing there I was trying to send live updates to my Twitter but found it challenging because of my shaking hands. After about two minutes, we heard a loud BOOM!" --Emily Schrader
