Israeli boy killed in rocket attack
A four-year-old boy was killed after scores of rockets were fired at Israel Friday. Three people were injured when another rocket struck at an Ashdod synagogue.
The Time of Israel identified the boy as Daniel Tragerman. Two men in their 20s and a woman in her 40s were injured by shrapnel from the Ashdod rocket. All three were taken to Barzilai Medical Centre in Ashkelon.
A senior medic told Haaretz that the rocket damaged the synagogue. “There was a great commotion and many hysterical frightened people,” the medic added.
Earlier in the day heavy rocket and mortar fire on southern Israel moderately wounded another Israeli in Be’ersheva, Haaretz reported.
In Gaza, Hamas reportedly killed 18 Palestinians suspected of being Israeli collaborators on Friday. Seven were reportedly shot in a public execution outside, and another 11 were executed at the Gaza City police headquarters.
