Two people were moderately injured people, two lightly injured and thirteen were suffering from shock as 20 rockets hit southern Israel on Saturday after the IAF struck terror targets in Gaza.
One rocket hit a home in Ashkelon and directly struck gas containers causing shrapnel to injure one man moderately. Fire crews were dousing the flames. Paramedics were also treating shock victims.
An hour earlier, a long-range rocket fell in a parking lot between two residential buildings in Ashdod. One person was lightly injured and extensive damage was reported.
Ashdod mayor Yehiel Lasri told Channel 2, "Ashdod is under attack, without a doubt."
A Magen David Adom spokesman said: "This was a miracle. It could have ended much worse."
An additional rocket fell in Eshkol, causing damage.
One rocket hit a school in Ashdod which was empty at the time. A further rocket fell in the Gan Yavne Regional Council where passer-by was lightly injured by shrapnel. He was evacuated to hospital.
A rocket also struck the Be'er Tuvia Regional Council - which was also targeted earlier this week, while another slammed into the Pithat Shalom Regional Council.
The Islamic Jihad's al-Quds Brigades took responsibility for the rocket attacks.
Out of all of the terror organizations in Gaza, the Islamic Jihad is most under direct Iranian command.
