Sderot children's miraculous escape from rocket

Thursday, July 03, 2014 |  Israel Today Staff

As 13 more rockets slammed into Southern Israel overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning from Gaza, a children's day-camp suffered a direct hit.

The rocket penetrated the apartment building in which housed the children's day-camp but miraculously failed to explode saving the children's lives.

This was one of 3 rockets which scored direct hits in Sderot populated areas overnight. One struck a student's residence, another struck a house while one fell in the street outside an apartment building causing damage to cars and causing a electrical power outage.

The rockets come amongst rising tensions in the area on the backdrop of the abduction and murder of the three Israeli teens on June 12 and the abduction and murder of the Jerusalem Arab teen, which has been called a revenge act, early yesterday morning.

Below we see the number of rockets fired from Gaza since the abduction of the Israeli teens on June 12.
