A bus was hit in Holon earlier in the evening, but it was empty at the time. Some 600 rockets have been fired at Israel so far.

Two more Israelis were killed during the rocket fire on Tuesday in Ashkelon. Dozens of Israelis, including a 5-year-old girl from Holon have been injured in the attacks, and an 84-year-old man running to the bomb shelter.

Lod has been the scene of massive Arab pogroms against the Jewish community. The Arab rioters have burned multiple synagogues and attacked Jewish residents. Border Police have been sent in to the city to quell the Arab violence.
