As tensions escalate in Israel following a barrage of rocket attacks from Iran, Bulgarian expatriate Rina Bakalov shares her harrowing experience of waiting anxiously for hours as rockets flew towards the country. Speaking to Nova TV, Bakalov described the unnerving atmosphere, stating, "We haven't slept during the night."
