Rocket fire seriously injures 4 Israelis in Ofakim
Their car was hit in the continuous rocket assault on Ofakim Sunday afternoon. Two are in serious condition. Another rocket injured a woman in her home. Extensive damage was caused to buildings and vehicles in Beersheba, Ashdod and other locations by an unrelenting missile barrage from the Gaza Strip since 0700 hours Sunday. A fireman was seriously hurt in Shear Hanegev earlier Sunday. He was attending to a fire ignited by a Palestinian rocket in a residential district of Shear Hanegev Sunday when he was hit by a second rocket. Iron Dome intercepted its first rocket over Sderot, the first time it proved effective as close as a 7 kilometer radius from Gaza. Seven were caught in mid-air by the defense system over Ashkelon and Ashdod.
