Four hospitalized after falling while running to bomb shelters in southern Israel

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

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it has taken five people in southern Israel to hospitals since the Israeli military launched Operation Breaking Dawn against the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip earlier Friday.

MDA says it treated four people who were lightly hurt after falling down while running to bomb shelters amid Islamic Jihad rocket attacks, and one person for anxiety.

They were taken to the Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon and the Assuta hospital in Ashdod.

MDA says another three people were treated for minor injuries after falling down while running to shelters but did not require hospitalization. Several others were treated for anxiety.
