Grad Hits Ashkelon School

051515 FINAL

Reports indicate that a Grad rocket has hit a children’s school in Ashkelon.  No injuries were reported.

The population of Ashkelon is estimated around 110,000 people.

The 122 mm Grad rockets used in Gaza have a range of about 25 miles, and can reach the cities of Ashdod, Beer-Sheva, Ashkelon, Gedera, Rehovot, Ofakim, Kiryat Gat, Sderot, Kiryat Malachi and Gan Yavne.  Most of the rockets are made in Iran, but some are made in China.  They are believed to be smuggled in through Egypt.
