    The death toll since the rocket fire from Gaza began on Erev Shabbos has R”L climbed to four, as an additional three Israelis were R”L killed from Gaza rockets on Sunday. Over 300 rockets have been fired since noon Sunday, and sirens continue to sound, forcing hundreds of thousands of Israelis into bomb shelters.

    In one incident, an Israeli was killed when there was a direct hit to an Ashkelon factory, and one in Ashkelon when a rocket struck a car.

    One has been identified as 68-year-old Moshe Feder, HY”D, a Kfar Saba resident. He is survived by two children and his fiance Iris Eden.

    Feder was fatally wounded when an anti-tank guided missile slammed into his car as he was driving along the Route 34 highway near the community of Kibbutz Erez just north of the Gaza border. He sustained a serious shrapnel wound to the leg, causing significant blood loss. Feder was pronounced dead at Ashkelon’s Barzilai Medical Center after CPR efforts failed. The Hamas terror group claimed responsibility for the attack.

    The other victim from the rocket attack in Ashkelon was identified as Ziad al-Hamamda, 47.

    A Bedouin Israeli resident of the Negev, al-Hamamda is survived by his wife and seven children, and was buried on Sunday night.

    Later on Sunday afternoon, 22-year-old Pinchas Menahem Pashwazman, HY”D, was killed by a rocket in Ashdod.

    There are others wounded from rocket fire, apparently one in now listed in moderate-to-serious condition and others with less serious injuries.

    The IDF confirmed that a Coronet anti-tank missile struck the vehicle and took additional action as a result. The area of that attack has been declared a closed military zone at this time.

    Since the renewed rocket fire earlier Sunday, over 300 rockets have been fired into southern Israel, with the total well past 700 since Erev Shabbos. The communities along the Gaza border, especially the Eshkol Regional Council, are literally being pounded by rocket fire.

    B’chasdei Hashem, most of the rockets landed in open areas, others were intercepted by the Iron Dome, and others unfortunately resulted in death, injuries and property damage. However, there was a direct hit on a home in Beersheva. There were no injuries reported.

    Over 110 persons have been treated since Erev Shabbos in Barzilai Hospital, including an 80-year-old woman who remains in serious condition following emergency life-saving surgery. 2 others remain in serious condition, 1 moderate, 53 light and 55 victims of hysteria. 28 victims are currently being treated and 9 have been admitted.

    The IAF has stepped up its response and it is reported by News13 that one home of a senior Hamas commander was hit, but he was not there, as senior Hamas commanders are in bunkers hiding. The Security Cabinet is convening at this time and it is reported the Prime Minister/Defense Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has given IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-General Aviv Kochavi the green light for the military to continue pounding terrorist targets. It does appear that the IDF is working to execute targeted strikes against senior Hamas commanders. Sirens continue wailing at this time.

    Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva reports receiving 11 victims in the past hour, including 10 being treated for hysteria. MDA reports treating a total of 66 hysteria victims.

    Rail service has been halted to and from Be’er Sheva as a result of a rocket strike to the tracks. The IDF has ordered a halt to service for security reasons and it is added that even after the green light is given to resume service, it remains to be determined how long the “significant damage” to the train tracks will take to repair.

    Earlier, Blue & White party leader Benny Gantz was about to hold a press conference in Yad Mordechai, but the sirens compelled him and others to run for cover.

    Prof. Chezi Levi of Barzilai Hospital reports that four victims arrived in “very serious condition”, of which two have been pronounced dead and they are fighting to save the others.
