Two foreign nationals were lightly hurt in a rocket impact at a construction site in Sderot, in addition to a man who was seriously hurt by shrapnel, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service.

The service says all three are being taken to a hospital in Ashkelon.

“The injured man was lying on the ground floor of the construction site, unconscious and suffering from shrapnel injuries to his body,” says MDA medic Matanel Iluz of the seriously injured man, 25.

“Two other workers who were slightly injured by shrapnel were treated at the scene and taken to the hospital by an MDA ambulance,” he adds.
