Report: 3 Palestinian workers injured by rocket

Aug. 20, 2011 9:39 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 21, 2011 6:31 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Three Palestinian workers sustained injuries after a rocket attack in Ashdod, Israel radio reported Saturday.

The radio report said the workers, in their 20s, sustained serious injuries and were receiving treatment at a hospital in southern Israel.

Several Palestinian groups have claimed rocket attacks on Israeli targets in the past 24 hours. The military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees said its operatives launched a rocket attack early Saturday.

The An-Nasser Brigades said in a statement that the rocket was in retaliation for Israeli attacks that left dead the group's commander Abu Awad An-Nayrab and four others Thursday.

Israeli forces launched a series of strikes on targets across the Gaza Strip late Thursday, killing six people in Rafah in the south and a 13-year-old boy in Gaza City and injuring at least 18 others.

The operations came hours after a series of attacks killed eight Israelis near Eilat.
