Rockets hit Ashkelon
After Tzahal killed four armed Hamas gunmen and destroyed a tunnel used for transporting arms, there has been an escalation of rocket attacks from Gaza.
Most of the rockets were fired at settlements around the Gaza border but yesterday sirens were heard once again in the city as three rockets fired from Gaza fell in Ashkelon. Today, sirens again, as four rockets hit Ashkelon.
Luckily no damage and no injuries, apart from a number of residents who had to be treated for shock. One of the rockets today fell near the central bus station and the street of high schools, and schools closed early.
A state of alert has been declared in the city, and public shelters have been opened.Nicole
