Grad rocket hits construction site in Ashkelon

A grad-type Katyusha rocket shot from Gaza hit a construction site in Ashkelon on Monday morning. One person was killed and sixteen (my information is more up-to-date than the JPost article to which this post links) were wounded, five of them seriously.
According to Channel 2, the missile hit the top floor of the building, which did not yet have a roof.

Magen David Adom ambulances evacuated all the people wounded in the attacks to Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon.

Most of the people at the site were Arab construction workers from Rahat and the Manda village in the Galilee.

According to initial reports, several people were in shock following the attack.
Israel Radio reports that the government is investigating why these workers were left exposed in Ashkelon.

The entire area around the Gaza Strip (it's not clear to me what radius) has been declared a "closed military zone."

More incoming rockets, from what I just heard.

They're surprised Hamas' can hit Ashkelon? You mean they didn't know? And they're still fighting this "war" with kid gloves.
