    A 60-year-old man was declared dead on Saturday night after being critically wounded at approximately 2:30 a.m. following a rocket attack which hit a building in the Ashkelon area.

    Magen David Adom paramedics provided medical treatment to the man and evacuated him to the Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon with shrapnel wounds in his chest and stomach. The hospital announced his death approximately one hour later.

    Ashkelon Mayor Tomer Glam arrived at the scene of the attack and said, “This is a difficult time for the city of Ashkelon. We are all mourning, hurt and broken by the tragedy of one of the oldest and most well-known families in Ashkelon.”

    “The municipality will provide the family with all the assistance it needs at this time and will support it as necessary. On this occasion, I would like to send my best wishes for speedy recovery and complete healing to those injured from the last rocket barrage towards the city,” added the mayor.

    Earlier on Saturday night, a Color Red air raid siren sounded in the southern city of Be’er Sheva.

    According to reports, the Iron Dome successfully intercepted some of the rockets. However, at least two rockets fell in the city itself.

    One of the rockets landed in a high school, igniting a fire. The other hit a family home. No injuries were reported.

    In addition, two people were injured Saturday night by a rocket which landed in the southern Bedouin town of Laqiya.

    Six people have been transferred to Be’er Sheva’s Soroka Medical Center, some suffering shock and others who were injured while running for shelter.

    Over 300 rockets have been fired at Israel since Saturday morning. Rockets have fallen in Hof Ashkelon, Ofakim, Kiryat Gat, and Sderot.

    Dozens of rockets have been intercepted so far.

    In addition to the sirens in Be’er Sheva and Gaza-area communities, sirens also sounded in Beit Shemesh, the central Mazkeret Batya and Bilu Junction.

    Be’er Sheva, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Kiryat Malachi, and Yavne have ordered public bomb shelters to be opened, and the Home Front Command has ordered Gaza-area communities, as well as some in central Israel, to cancel school on Sunday.

    In addition, the IDF has closed off areas near the Gaza-Israel border, and Ashkelon’s beaches have been closed to bathers. The Home Front Command has banned all gatherings in Gaza-area communities and ordered that workplaces near Gaza which do not have proper bomb shelters remain closed on Sunday.
