Besides the rocket fired near Jerusalem, there was also one shot at Rishin LeZion
Even as rumors of an impending cease-fire were coming in on Tuesday and Wednesday, terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip continued to fire rockets toward central Israel.
On Wednesday morning, a house in Be'er Tuvia, near Kiryat Malachi, took a direct hit. On Tuesday, a rocket hit a residential building in Rishon Lezion, seriously damaging the top four floors; and another rocket exploded between two Palestinian villages in the West Bank just south of Jerusalem.
Rishon Lezion is located just southeast of Tel Aviv. A Fajr rocket carrying a 90-kilogram (200-pound) warhead hit a seven-floor apartment building around 6:00 p.m. Four people were lightly injured and the explosion caused massive damage. Most of the residents had moved to protected rooms when the warning siren sounded, which averted disaster.
The incident marked the third time that the warning sirens have sounded in Rishon Letzion over the past week and the first time a rocket directly hit a building in the city. In the previous incidents, one rocket hit an open area and the other was intercepted by the Iron Dome.
