Eleven unguided Grad rockets were fired from Lebanon this morning at the IDF Northern Command headquarters in Safed, according to the military’s assessments.

Nine slammed into open areas, while two hit infrastructure and were not intercepted, including one that struck the IDF base, killing a soldier.

Staff Sgt. Omer Sarah Benjo was running to a bomb shelter when the rocket struck the base, killing her. Several more soldiers were also wounded in the strike.

The IDF is investigating if there was enough time from when sirens sounded for people in Safed to seek shelter.
