A Russian immigrant who lost her foot in a rocket attack on Haifa, said she loves Israel and will stay despite the attacks.

“I’m crazy about Israel, there’s no other country like it,” said Galina Goldianka.

Goldianka, 43, a new immigrant who moved to Israel only a year ago from Russia was a few meters from the post office when a rocket landed on the building. She was wounded by shrapnel and lost her foot. But she didn’t lose her positive spirit.

"I'm crazy about this country. There is no other country in the world like Israel and no other city like Haifa."
