A video reportedly shows Israeli children trying to crowd into a bomb shelter during a Palestinian missile attack on the city of Sderot. . .
Three people were injured in the attack on Sderot. Hamas viewed this attack as retaliation for Israel killing two of its soldiers. Those soldiers were killed during an Israeli strike on a Hamas military post Tuesday, which was in turn an Israeli response to Palestinian militant fire on Israeli troops.
The Israeli military confirmed that Hamas had fired at least 36 rockets from Gaza on Wednesday. Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system reportedly destroyed several of these missiles.
In the video, a rocket can be seen arching across the sky. This rocket appears to be destroyed mid-flight. Moments later, an explosion can be heard, as black smoke billows from what looks like another missile strike. A mob of children, some covering their ears, pushes and shoves each other as they try to enter a small door in what appears to be some sort of a shelter. Some carry infants. . .
According to the Israeli military, these included “an offensive maritime terror tunnel … several terror sites in military compounds throughout the Gaza Strip … rocket manufacturing facilities and a central logistical military complex.” (Read more from “Video Reportedly Shows Israeli Children Trying to Reach Shelter During Palestinian Missile Strike” HERE)
