Hamas rocket hits child therapy centre....
This could have been a disaster if it was a week-day...
On any other day, the facility on the Sapir campus would have been packed with kids, and the losses would have been devastating.
The child hydrotherapy rehabilitation center adjoining Sderot’s Sapir Academic College provides therapy and workshops for specialneeds children who live in the western Negev and is used by children from the entire country.
On Saturday night, an upgraded Kassam rocket scored a direct hit on the ceiling of the center.
The Kassam hit not far from where Sapir student Roni Yechiah was killed on February 27, 2008.
The attack followed the explosion of a Iranian Grad missile that hit the city of Ashkelon on Friday morning.
We are approaching a total of 400 rocket attacks launched from Gaza since the cease-fire that halted Israel’s Operation Cast Lead in Gaza in January 2009.
