Rocket strikes Ashkelon building; Palestinian worker hurt, treated by MDA

Magen David Adom says medics treated a Palestinian worker who was lightly-to-moderately hurt by shrapnel during rocket fire on the southern coastal city of Ashkelon.

The Palestinian, a resident of Hebron, who MDA says is 35, was taken to a local hospital. The ambulance service says the shrapnel was likely from glass.

The hospital later lists the man as being only lightly hurt.

According to the Ashkelon municipality, the man was injured while in a building in the city’s industrial area that was struck during a volley fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza.
