Dr. Reshef said he is impressed with Israel's missile defense system, called the Iron Dome.
“There is some comfort in some ways in Iron Dome," explained Reshef. "It's a big game changer, yet the uncertainty and the constant barrage of missiles.”
Reshef served in the Israeli military, and many of his family members still live in Israel.
“My sister's daughter lives about 15 seconds from the missiles coming from Gaza,” Reshef told News 9. “The things you don't know is what goes through their mind, how much their routine is interrupted, how close they are to things that happen,” he said.
Both men agree the loss of civilian life is unacceptable, like the four young Palestinian boys killed by an Israeli rocket attack.
“The killing of innocent people is inexcusable," said Enchassi. "It doesn't matter who perpetrated."
Dr. Reshef said he feels for the people in Gaza.
“Civilians get hurt, and the tragedy is the Gazans have no way out,” Dr. Reshef said.
