Woman wounded in rocket attack regains consciousness, hospital says

The Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba says the woman seriously wounded in a rocket attack early this morning has seen her condition improve dramatically. She is no longer on a respirator and has regained consciousness, doctors say. She is now categorized in moderate condition at Soroka’s intensive care unit.

A second person wounded in that strike was treated at the hospital and has already been sent home, the hospital says.

The woman, a 30-year-old foreign worker from Thailand, suffered injuries to her abdomen and limbs when a rocket hit her home in the Eshkol regional council.

According to the IDF, at least five other people were wounded by the rocket and mortar attacks on Wednesday and today, either from shrapnel or in injuries sustained while rushing to bomb shelters. Dozens of Israelis were treated for panic attacks caused by the explosions of the rockets, including two pregnant women in the southern town of Sderot who went into premature labor.
