Police and security officials view Kassam rocket that hit an Ashkelon schoolyard Tuesday evening.
YNETnews has a brief film clip of the very moment the Kassam rocket fired from northern Gaza slammed into the schoolyard of the ORT Ronson High School in Ashkelon.
While the area the Kassam hit was unoccupied due to summer vacation, parents registering their children for the coming school year were in the immediate vicinity, and paramedics who rushed to the scene treated a number of individuals for shock.
While some residents said they heard the IDF's "red dawn," loudspeaker alert of the incoming missile, others said all they heard was the shreik of the rocket just before it hit.
Excellent commentary on this escalation by Arnold and Frimet Roth of Jerusalem, who lost their 15-year-old daughter Malki in the suicide bombing at the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem in 2001.
