CJ from Georgia, USA has been playing for Kibbutz Be’eri’s basketball team for the past few months. Sderot Media Center recently interviewed CJ about his experience playing basketball under Palestinian rocket fire. CJ explained that he never thought that he would be in this kind of situation. He told Sderot Media Center that he has trouble sleeping at night because of the sirens and exploding rockets.
“I was more shocked that afraid. People here on the kibbutz are used to this, but I’m not used to the rockets,” said CJ.
Because of the escalation in Palestinian rocket fire on the western Negev, CJ’s coache and managers have decided to relocate CJ to another basketball team outside the Negev region. “I don’t want to quit. I love playing for all the fans.” concludes CJ.
