Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it has provided medical care to 71 people since the start of the IDF’s Operation Shield and Arrow on Tuesday.

One Israeli woman was killed in Rehovot on Thursday, and a Palestinian man from the Gaza Strip was killed earlier today in southern Israel.

Twenty-seven people suffered physical injuries, including seven people wounded by shrapnel and broken glass as a result of rocket impacts, one of them seriously and four of them moderately.

MDA says 18 people were lightly hurt while running for shelter during a rocket alert siren.

Another 44 sought treatment for acute anxiety from nearby impacts, Magen David Adom says.
