The Tinkling of Metal

I have been watching a number of YouTube videos on the subject of Gaza vs Israel. I must admit, I did not know enough about what was really going on there. One part of a video struck me, not all the shots of horror in Israel or Gaza, but a small, common moment. A rocket came in, the Iron Dome shot it down. The people in the video had crouched next to a wall and covered their head and ears when the rocket came in.

Afterwards, one of the men in the video explained this was a common occurrence. The missiles come often. The trick is you get down, cover, the Iron Dome intercepts them, (hopefully) and then you hear the tinkling of metal as the pieces fall to the ground.

This haunts me for some reason.
