Victim of Beersheva rocket attack on way to 9-month pregnant wife

The victim of the Beersheva rocket attack carried out by terrorists on Saturday night is 38-year old Yossi Shoshan from Ofakim. He was on his way to his nine-month pregnant wife when the sirens went off.
The man killed in the Beersheba attack was named as 38-year-old Yossi Shoshan from Ofakim. Shoshan was on his way to his nine-month pregnant wife after hearing air raid sirens and becoming concerned for her safety, media reports said.

A woman injured in the attack was fighting for her life at Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba.

Doctors there were also treating five more people who were injured by the rocket, which slammed into a residential street, destroying a vehicle and a home.

Television footage showed shell-shocked residents, the remains of the vehicle and the burnt-out home.


Sirens were heard in Beersheba shortly before the rocket salvo struck the city. A witness told Channel 10 the injured had stood as close as they could to a wall to seek cover, when the rocket hit right next to them.

The hospital said two people were in critical condition (one was a woman, the other was unidentified), two were in serious condition and two others sustained moderate wounds.
I guess the child will be named after him. What a shame.... Baruch Dayan HeEmeth (may the True Judge be blessed).

Unfortunately, he didn't belong to the Tel Aviv branja. His death means nothing to those who run the country.

If it doesn't happen in Tel Aviv, it doesn't happen at all.

Don't look for Operation Cast Lead II to happen in the foreseeable future.

What could go wrong indeed

NormanF, what is "the Tel Aviv branja"? I don't know that word.
