Two people are lightly injured by shrapnel during a rocket attack on an Israeli community close to the border with the Gaza Strip.
According to Channel 13 news, the two were injured as they went to help a person hurt by an earlier rocket, when a second projectile was fired at the same area by terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
The two did not have time to reach a protected area and were hit by shrapnel — it was unclear if they were hurt by the projectile itself or as a result of an interception by a missile defense system.
The two received medical attention on the scene.
The individual injured earlier, a man in his 30s, has been taken to Beersheba’s Soroka Hospital for treatment.
