Photos: Grad Rocket Attack In Ashdod!
style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">A Grad rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed in a residential area of Ashdod causing extensive damage to homes and lightly injuring two people.
At least eight of the 31 rockets fired on Monday were intercepted by the Iron Dome rocket defense system, including several fired toward Ashdod.
However, one Grad rocket not intercepted by the Iron Dome hit a residential area of Ashdod on Monday afternoon, causing damage to homes. One of the injured, an elderly woman, was evacuated to Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot after being struck by flying glass shards. One other person was injured from glass and eight people were treated for shock following the attack.
