As rockets fall, French Jews move to southern Israel

Amid continuous rocket fire from the Gaza Strip, some 400 French Jewish immigrants — including 195 minors and 18 babies — will land in Israel later today.

Sixty of the new arrivals will be moving to the southern cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon, both of which continue to be pummeled by rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

One hundred immigrants will be moving to Tel Aviv and central Israel, 130 will move to the coastal city of Netanya, and approximately 50 to Jerusalem, according to a statement from the Jewish Agency.
