One Killed, Two Hurt as Rocket Strikes Ashkelon Apartment Building

After a barrage of more than 300 rockets were fired at Israel by terrorists in Gaza, one fatality has been confirmed. The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross reports that one man is dead and two more people have been seriously wounded after a terrorist rocket struck a four-story apartment building in the city of Ashkelon:

A man was killed and two women were seriously injured after a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip scored a direct hit on an apartment building in Ashkelon.

The fatality was the first in Israel after a day that saw more than 300 missiles and mortar rounds fired at Israeli communities near the Gaza Strip in a series of massive barrages that stretched past midnight Monday and into Tuesday morning...

The man, a civilian in his 40s, was found dead under debris after an apartment building had been hit by a missile fired from Gaza shortly after midnight, according to the United Hatzalah rescue service.

The rocket appeared to have hit the upper floors of the four-story apartment building, leaving a gaping hole in its side.

A woman, also in her 40s, was found in serious condition near the man and was rushed to Barzilai hospital...
