CBNNews.com - ASHDOD, Israel - Nine-year-old Osher Twito, who lost his left leg in a Kassam rocket attack in his hometown of Sderot last February, has been released from the hospital.
For the time being, the family is living in the coastal city of Ashdod, which will keep him closer to the Tel Hashomer hospital for ongoing physical therapy and to be fitted with prosthesis.
Aside from that, Osher isn't ready to return to his hometown just yet.
"I'm very happy. I'm looking forward to the move to Ashdod," he said as he left the hospital after a seven-month stay.
"I'm a bit worried about the new school and everything else, but I'm sure it will all be alright," he said.
Osher's mom, Iris, said she understands his reluctance to return to Sderot.
"He didn't want to return to Sderot, and I completely understand him," she said. "We have rented an apartment near the marina and that is where we will be living.
"I believe that in a year or two, we will go back there," she said. "The situation KASSAM ROCKET ATTACKS will come down, and we will be able to go back. Sderot is the kind of place that you just can't leave behind. You can't find good people like that anywhere else," she said.
"This cease-fire scares me because it feels like they're planning something worse," she said.
