Rockets Barely Miss Packed Israeli Kindergarten


A salvo of rockets landed close to a packed Israeli kindergarten in the south on Friday, breaking the calm after a relatively quiet night. A five-rocket salvo saw the Iron Dome intercept two rockets over Ashkelon.

Three rockets struck the western Negev; one of them landed just 12 meters (roughly feet) from a packed kindergarten. Luckily, all children and staff are safe; the building was protected from rocket fire and all of the occupants were in safe areas.
