Three people were killed and a baby was critically injured Thursday morning after a rocket blasted into a four story building in Kiryat Malachi. As emergency services scrambled to rescue those still trapped inside the shattered structure another five missiles were fired at the town but the Iron Dome system intercepted them before they landed.The commentators on Israel television are saying the building had no safe room or bomb shelter. The tragic hit is a clear illustration of what might have happened forty additional times in the last 12 hours, were it not for the Iron Dome system knocking incoming missiles out of the air. Forty intercepts so far is what the analysts are quoting at this hour.
Kiryat Malachi is one of dozens of communities under fire by the terrorists at this exact moment. Ashdod has suffered five separate rocket attacks in the past 20 minutes. War for all practical purposes.
