Gas station in Ashdod struck by missile, injuring disabled man

A target the Hamas no doubt was hoping for got struck by one of their foul projectiles, and a disabled man was seriously wounded:
A disabled man was severely injured and seven more people were lightly injured Friday morning when a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit an Ashdod gas station, starting a massive fire. An Israeli Air Force plane bombed the launch site from where the rocket was fired.

The 61-year-old man who was seriously wounded in the blast was unable to exit his car when the air raid siren sounded, leaving him vulnerable. After being treated initially at Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot, the man was transferred to Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva for further care.

Magen David Adom emergency services paramedic Yehuda Gabai was on his way to reserve duty when he saw the explosion.

"I heard the alarm and took cover," he said. "When I lifted my head, I saw a cloud of smoke and ran to the scene. MDA staff helped me get the injured man out of car."

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, who arrived at the scene, said, "To their credit, people fled and took cover. If they hadn't, there would be many more people injured." He then praised the Iron Dome system for protecting Israel from the ongoing rocket fire.

Following the explosion in Ashdod, three rockets from Gaza were intercepted over the Tel Aviv area by the Iron Dome defense system. Air raid sirens sounded in cities throughout central Israel, including Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Hod Hasharon, Rehovot, Givatayim and Ramat Gan.

Shrapnel from the interceptions fell around the Tel Aviv area, including near a children's playground.
One more reason why a ground operation is going to have to be conducted, otherwise, this horror will return in the forseeable future. Zvika Fogel says every last Hamas terrorist should be smashed to pieces.
