Crews Attend to Injured at Ashkelon Apartment Complex After Rocket Strike

First responders attended to the wounded at an apartment complex in Ashkelon, Israel, on May 11, as rockets from Gaza continued to target the city, killing at least two people and injuring dozens more, according to local reports.

A spokesman for Hamas said the group fired 137 rockets toward Israel within five minutes, according to Haaretz. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said more than 300 missiles had been fired at Israel between May 10 and the early afternoon of May 11.

The IDF responded with airstrikes, which Gaza health officials said killed at least 25 people.

The cross-border escalation follows days of tensions around Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque and the city’s Sheik Jarrah neighborhood. Credit: Eliram Moshe via Storyful
