Gaza Grad Rocket Strikes Ashkelon School on Saturday
Palestinian Rocket Terror Continues Despite Ceasefire.
February 28: Palestinian terrorists fired six rockets at southern Israel throughout Saturday. A Grad-type rocket struck an Ashkelon school, causing heavy damage to classrooms in the morning. Although a number of Ashkelon civilians were treated for shock, further injuries were prevented because the school was closed.
The Grad rocket tore through the school, after the air raid siren sounded around 8:43 am, warning Ashkelon residents of the impending rocket attack.
