Magen David Adom: 12 killed in Israel in rocket attacks, 312 injured

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it has treated a total of 324 people nationwide due to rocket attacks since the current round of fighting began last week.

There were 10 people who were killed from direct hits or shrapnel wounds and two who died of injuries sustained during a rush to a bomb shelter.

MDA says 114 people were injured by shrapnel or rocket or glass shards, including 7 seriously wounded and 12 moderately. The rest suffered mild injuries.

Another 198 people were hurt while rushing to a shelter when sirens sounded, including 1 in serious condition and 5 in moderate condition.

In addition, 226 people were treated after suffering acute anxiety attacks.

MDA adds that in the widespread ethnic unrest in many mixed Jewish-Arab cities, its medics have treated 194 people, including one who was critically injured and later died from the wounds, 10 who were seriously injured and 29 moderately injured.
