Day 50 of Protective Edge Direct Hit in Ashkelon, 50 Hospitalized for Light Wounds, Shock


A Hamas rocket scored a direct hit on a home in Ashkelon at about 6:30 Tuesday morning, causing light injuries to six members of the family that lives in it and to dozens of residents of nearby buildings. One of them, an eight year old boy, was reportedly injured in the face by broken glass.

The rocket also caused a great amount of damage to the home and caused a water pipe to burst outside the home. The rocket reportedly slammed into the master bedroom of the home just seconds after the parents left it, to wake up their children and lead them to the safe space.
