Paul Kaye on experiencing a Hamas rocket attack

Actor Paul Kaye, whose mother-in-law was killed in a Hamas rocket attack, told the BBC he had experienced the situation from an Israeli point of view.

“It’s terrifying,” he said. “My wife was trapped in a supermarket in a rocket attack. I was with my sons in Ashkelon station, holding them, waiting for a rocket to land and shutting my eyes thinking ‘is this it?’

“So I think it’s important to remember that mothers fleeing rocket attacks holding their children have the same fear on both sides of the border.”
