At least 15 rockets landed in southern townships during the night and this morning, Monday 13 Cheshvan 5773 they are continuing. Sirens sounded in Sderot, the Eshkol Regional Council, Ashkelon Coast Regional Council, Ashkelon Industrial Park in the past hour, and B’chasdei Hashem were continue to witness miracles and the rockets are hitting open areas.
