Hamas Launches Rocket At Children’s Playground In Israel

A rocket was fired by Hamas from inside Rafah and landed in the middle of a children’s playground inside Israel this week.

A total of 14 rockets were reportedly launched at Beersheba on Friday, the first time the town has faced rocket alerts in five months.

The IDF later located two launch sites inside Rafah and destroyed both of them.

“The locations of the launch posts further show how Hamas intentionally embeds itself in close proximity to civilian population and infrastructure throughout the Gaza Strip,” an IDF spokesperson said.

The IDF posted a video that revealed how one of the rockets landed in the middle of a playground and its explosion sent shrapnel flying everywhere.

“We arrived at the scene with many personnel, we saw a lot of commotion and damage to the playground, and nearby, was a 37-year-old woman who was fully conscious and suffered from a shrapnel wound to her leg,” medics from Magen David Adom (MDA) said.

No children were allegedly present when the rocket hit.
