Arutz Sheva has obtained security footage from cameras next to the Ashdod gas station which was set ablaze on Friday, after rockets struck in the Israeli coastal city. 

The footage shows motorists running to shelter during the siren, then heavy smoke as the station erupts into flame. 

The gas station fire has been hailed as "miraculous" after only one person was injured in the blaze, and after a tank carrying more than 35,000 liters of benzine gas did not ignite. 

The rocket was one of the few to hit the city of Ashdod, despite a salvo of 20 rockets fired Friday morning in a very short period.
