As Stand for Israel tells you, southern Israelis had a long night last night due to rocket barrages fired from Gaza. But despite the attacks and the damage they caused, The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross reports, schools in the region were set to open as usual:
Schools in southern Israel opened as normal on Wednesday morning, following a “sleepless night” of dozens of rocket and mortar attacks from the Gaza Strip, including one that hit just outside a kindergarten, local officials said.
“Lessons in education facilities are being held as usual. Security coordinators from the communities [in the region] will accompany the students’ buses to schools,” said a spokesperson for the Eshkol region, the area that was hit hardest by rockets.
Though the schools opened as usual, the day’s activities were altered in light of the predawn Palestinian attacks and the Israel Defense Forces’ counterstrikes in Gaza.
“Lessons will be adapted to the events of the night. The teaching staff will speak to students and try to identify any problems,” she said...
On Wednesday morning, Gadi Yarkoni, the head of the Eshkol region, praised the IDF for carrying out the initial airstrikes in response to the Gazan arson attacks.
“Eshkol residents had a sleepless night last night,” Yarkoni said. “We support the IDF for its response to the terror kites, which harm our way of life. And we expect the IDF to continue working to bring back calm to the region, with no more rockets launched at our communities and homes, and no more fires in our fields.”
