Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
Gaza terrorists fired a Grad Katyusha missile at Be’er Sheva shortly before 11:00 a.m. local time on Monday.
The missile exploded in an open area on the outskirts of the city, known as the ‘capital of the southern region.’ No physical injuries and no property damage has been reported thus far.
Two similar missiles were fired at the city on Saturday as well; one was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, which indicates it was headed for a populated area. The second landed in an open area and caused no property damage. No physical injuries were reported.
Nevertheless, the attacks cause a great deal of anxiety in the population and often trigger trauma attacks in numerous people as well. Mental health centers set up to treat those with post-traumatic stress syndrome report an uptick in the number of calls they have received in the past month due to the escalation in attacks from Gaza.
Despite the government’s promise to silence the rocket fire, Gaza terrorists have continued to escalate and widen the range of their attacks.
Mayors in the coastal cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon have cancelled children’s activities in public buildings that do not contain bomb shelters out of concern the participants may not be protected in the event of an attack.
