Southern Israel Bombarded by Rocket Fire, 1 Dead 4 Injured
JPost – One man was killed and four people wounded when southern Israel was bombarded with long-range Grad rockets by Islamic Jihad in Gaza on Saturday. The barrage came after five terrorists were killed in IAF strikes on targets in the Strip.
The man was badly injured by shrapnel from a rocket fired at a residential neighborhood in Ashkelon. He was rushed to the Barzilai Medical Center in the city for emergency care, but doctors were unable to save his life. A second rocket fired at Ashkelon directly struck a home, setting gas containers on fire. Fire crews doused the flames.
