4-Aug-11: And a second GRAD two hours later
Ynet says a second GRAD rocket, fired from the Gaza Strip by the resident terrorist thugs in the general direction of Israel, exploded some two hours after the one we reported earlier (4-Aug-11: Rocket attacks escalate: GRAD fire on southern Israel), this time at what it terms "the entrance to the southern city of Ashkelon". No injuries or damage are so far reported, though the Jerusalem Post is saying roads were damaged. It calls the attacks an escalation in the firing of longer-range rockets. In Ashkelon, five people were injured while running for shelter after the incoming rocket warning was sounded.
