Magen David Adom: 48 Israelis treated since start of Gaza rocket fire

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it has treated 48 Israelis since rocket fire from Gaza began yesterday morning after Israel killed a senior Islamic Jihad military commander.

Twenty-three of the victims suffered from anxiety, while 23 people were treated for injuries sustained after falling while running to bomb shelters during red alert sirens, according to MDA. Two victims, aged 30 and 55, 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 yesterday morning was related to the rocket fire or siren. She remains in serious condition.
