Posted on 08/22/2014 5:56:57 AM PDT by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis
A salvo of rockets landed close to a packed Israeli kindergarten in the south on Friday, breaking the calm after a relatively quiet night.
A five-rocket salvo saw the Iron Dome intercept two rockets over Ashkelon. Three rockets struck the western Negev; one of them landed just 12 meters (roughly feet) from a packed kindergarten. Luckily, all children and staff are safe; the building was protected from rocket fire and all of the occupants were in safe areas.
Earlier on Friday, a 54 year-old man in Be'er Sheva was moderately wounded by shrapnel from a three-rocket salvo on the southern capital. Local power outages have also been reported in the area and at least one car was hit by shrapnel.
Earlier Friday, an additional salvo was fired at the Ashkelon Regional Council, near the Gaza Belt, and in the Negev, but there are no injuries nor damage reported.
The near-miss follows Education Minister Shai Piron's assertion Thursday that the school year would continue as usual, despite the ongoing rocket fire on civilians.

Imagine. US taxpayer money made this possible.
Lois Lerner. The Obamas. The State Dept.
I am sure the MSM will be right on this story...
I think via the media definition that when ham-ass drops rockets near Israeli kindergartens, it’s okay. When they use civilians as shields despite spot on targeting by the Israelis, it is railed against. Kinda like political correctness here. The new black panthers can have any open carry event and no one blinks. If the Tea Party did the same event, nannie bloomers and mares against guns would have the networks there in a flash. Ergo: mares against guns are the same as ham-ass?
Sounds like it is time for Israel to do a little more land clearing in Gaza.
Please drop bombs on Gaza, mid-air refuel, and go on over and strafe some ISIS in Syria for us.
Thanks in advance.
The Lord God defends His own.
Is there really ever a “safe area” from rockets landing on you?
It’s one thing for adults to stay in the target zone but it’s another to still have kids there. I’d have moved my kids far, far away.
Any idea what that structure is in the background?
i tried looking... sorry can’t tell you.
