This weekend, various terror factions in Gaza launched a barrage of missiles on southern Israel – with reports ranging from between 60 and 80 missiles being fired. Over one million Israelis live within missile range of Gaza, of which the IDF notes 500,000 reside in targeted communities and were forced to take cover in bomb shelters today.
38-year-old Yossi Shushan, a resident of the town of Ofakim, was killed by a missile that struck him as he was on his way to see his wife, who is in the ninth month of pregnancy.
At least 18 others have been wounded – including a baby and child also in Ofakim. 6 of the wounded are reported to be suffering severe injuries.
