Israeli Woman Vows to Rebuild After Rocket From Gaza Destroys Home (VIDEO)

Sigal Ariely’s house in Ashkelon in southern Israel lies in ruins after a Hamas rocket scored a direct hit mere hours before a cease-fire went into effect

A cease-fire in place between Israel and Hamas may have stopped the rocket attacks, but Sigal Ariely has already lost almost everything. 

The 59-year-old mother of three is still picking up the pieces after a rocket fired from Gaza hit her home in Ashkelon, a southern Israeli city located about 25 miles from the Gaza border. 

Disaster struck the Ariely household on May 20, a few hours before a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, the terrorist group that rules over the Gaza Strip, went into effect.
