Six wounded, two seriously as Grad hits Be'er Sheva

At least six people were wounded this evening, two of them seriously (a woman and a 7-year old boy) when two Grad-type Katyusha rockets fired by 'Palestinian' terrorists in Gaza hit Be'er Sheva. One of the rockets scored a direct hit on a car. This is from Arutz Sheva's coverage:
A seven-year-old boy was seriously wounded Thursday evening when a Grad missile fired by Gaza terrorists struck the city of Be'er Sheva. Two Grad missiles hit the city at approximately 5:00 p.m. One slammed into a residential area adjacent to a main highway and hit a car with several passengers.

The vehicle had stopped on the highway when the rocket warning siren sounded, as directed by Home Front Command in its instructions to the public. It was not clear whether the passengers had managed to exit the vehicle and lie down on their stomachs, away from the vehicle, before the rocket hit.

Six people were wounded in the attack, two seriously. One person was moderately wounded and the others suffered light injuries. A number of other people suffered severe emotional trauma. All were evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in the city. Hospital officials set up an information hotline at: 12-55-177.


Security officials in Be'er Sheva warned civilians not to approach the area. Anyone who hears a rocket alert siren while traveling by car should stop at the side of the road, exit the vehicle, lie down at a distance from the vehicle and wait for five minutes, after which they are instructed to get in the car and proceed directly to their destination without delay.
That sounds about as effective as this set of cold war era instructions from the US.

There's only one way to end this war. Blast the enemy out of existence!
