Watch: Pedestrians narrowly dodge falling rocket fragment in Tel Aviv

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent

Surveillance camera footage from Tel Aviv highlights the importance of IDF Home Front Command instructions to remain in a bomb shelter for 10 minutes after rocket sirens sound, even if an interception blast is heard.

The clip shows two people walking down a street when a large fragment of an intercepted rocket crashes down just a hair away.

Shrapnel from Iron Dome interceptions, including both pieces of rockets and interceptor missiles, tend to take a few minutes to fall to the ground after the projectiles are blown up mid-air.

Damage from interception shrapnel during the same attack also apparently caused damage to a school in the city.
