An eight-year-old boy was lightly wounded, Monday afternoon, when a rocket launched by Gaza terrorists exploded in the yard of a building in Ashdod. The Magen David Adom (Red Star of David) was sent to the scene to provide medical treatment.
Ashdod is one of many southern cities and other localities targeted since late in the morning. Most of the rockets landed in open areas, causing no injuries or damage. The Iron Dome anti-missile defense intercepted two terrorist rockets.
