One killed, two critically wounded as Gaza terrorists hit Be'er Sheva. Terrorists fire 45 rockets and mortars, children among wounded.
Gaza terrorists bombarded cities in Israel's southern region Saturday night. One person was killed when a Grad rocket hit Be'er Sheva, and another two were critically wounded. Four others were wounded as well, and are in serious-to-moderate condition.
Earlier in the day a 4-month-old baby, a 20-year-old man and 9-year-old boy were among those wounded when a Grad Katyusha missile fired by Gaza terrorists struck a home in Ofakim.
In total, terrorists have fired 45 rockets since Thursday night, wounding a total of 22 people. Four are in serious condition, suffering life-threatening wounds.
The Iron Dome system has shot down some rockets. On Saturday night it took out a rocket aimed at Be'er Sheva (see video-footage below).
Hamas has officially ended an often-broken ceasefire with Israel, openly involving Gaza's leadership in the attacks.
The IDF has responded by hitting several terrorist outposts in Gaza.
