Video: Ashkelon house takes direct hit from rocketSix members of an Ashkelon family were lightly injured this morning when a rocket slammed into the master bedroom of their home just after the parents had gone to awaken their children and lead them to a safe room.
Let's go to the videotape.
John Daly, who videotaped the rocket's impact, describes what happened.
Ashkelon resident John Daly recorded the moment of impact and uploaded the video to Facebook. "Two blocks over and a direct hit," he wrote. "Alarm goes off and my cat knew we were headed to film so she went to the window with me. You can hear the sound of glass shattering up and down the street from the shockwave. The 'shaking' of the camera is from the explosive force, look at the tree - it is shaking as well."And a lot of people outside the house were hurt as well.
While national news outlets put the number of people hurt at six, Ashkelonet, a local news outlet, reported that 50 people were brought to Barzilai Hospital following the rocket attack. Of these, it said, 21 suffered light physical injuries and 29 suffered from emotional shock.Is this really how we can expect to live for the next several years?
