Rocket launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza hits home in Sderot
An Israeli family obeyed instructions and were in shelters when the rocket hit their house.
There is damage but no one was hurt.
Police sappers were called to the scene.
Some 600 Israeli children members of the Scouts were evacuated from youth camps in areas near Gaza tonight as concerns of escalation grow.
“When we got to the street there was a lot of hustle and bustle, there were several cars with shattered windscreens,” said paramedic Alex Kusinov, who was called to the home hit by the rocket.
“The residents of the house, a couple in their 40s and their children, were in an adjacent building,” he said.
“They told us that as soon as the sirens sounded, they entered the protected area and left a few minutes later. They were not injured and did not need medical attention.”
At least 20 rockets have been launched by Muslim terrorists from northern Gaza at civilians in southern Israel. Ten of the rockets reached Israeli territory. Eight of those rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
