United Hatzalah volunteers in Ashdod treated 6 people who were injured as a result of a rocket attack from Gaza that took place moments ago. 

United Hatzalah volunteer EMT Yitzchak Ponfender who was one of the first responders at the scene relayed: "Shrapnel from one of the rockets that was just launched at Israel fell i the city and caused damage to stores at a strip mall. The falling shrapnel as well as the color red siren caused panic and confusion among residents in the area. As a result, one pedestrian was moderately injured and five others sustained light injuries. Together with other EMS personnel, I treated those injured in the incident. Additionally, United Hatzalah's Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit (PCRU) whose expertise lies in providing psychological first aid at the scene of traumatic medical incidents was active at the scene and treated numerous residents for emotional and psychological shock."
