Magen David Adom: 39 Israelis treated since start of Gaza rocket fire

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it has treated 39 Israelis since rocket fire from Gaza began this morning after Israel killed a senior Islamic Jihad military commander.

Most of the victims suffered from anxiety, while 17 people were treated for injuries sustained after falling while running to bomb shelters during red alert sirens, according to MDA. Two victims were lightly injured by rocket shrapnel.

A MDA spokesman says doctors were still not sure if the heart attack suffered by an 8-year-old in a bomb shelter earlier today was related to the rocket fire or siren. She remains in serious condition.
