Three people injured as Hamas rocket hits synagogue; Kindergarten school almost hit earlier in day

Hamas isn’t letting up in rocket attacks on Israel and more people are being injured every day. Just a short while ago 3 people where injured when a rocket hit a synagogue in Ashdod. Earlier in the day a 54-year-old man was wounded in an attack on Be’er Sheva. Around that same time a rocket landed less than 40 feet away from a kindergarten school packed with students and teachers:

INN – A rocket fired by terrorists in Gaza has caused considerable damage to a synagogue in the southern Israeli city of Ashdod.

Paramedics from the United Hatzalah and Magen David Adom emergency organizations rushed to the scene, after a massive explosion was heard. Three people were injured and have been evacuated for further medical treatment after receiving first aid.

Medical sources described two of the victims as males, aged 25 and 26, who suffered shrapnel injuries to their extremities. They have been evacuated to the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot.

The third victim, a 40-year-old woman, suffered injuries to her torso, and has been evacuated to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.

Earlier in the day, a 54-year-old man was moderately wounded in a rocket attack on the southern city of Be’er Sheva.

Shortly afterwards, a rocket struck just 12 meters from a kindergarten packed with children and teachers. It was part of a five-rocket salvo from Gaza; the Iron Dome intercepted two others over the city of Ashkelon, and three fell on communities in the western Negev, one of which struck close to the kindergarten.

Luckily, no one was wounded in the attack as the kindergarten building – like most in southern Israel – was equipped with bomb shelters, and all of the building’s occupants managed to reach safe areas.

C’mon Netanyahu, the experiment is over. Time to take back Gaza.
