While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.
Direct rocket hits were reported in the southern Israeli cities of Sderot and Ashkelon following a heavy barrage of rockets from the Gaza Strip on Wednesday night.
The municipalities of Sderot and Ashkelon both confirmed they had received initial reports of two direct hits on unspecified residential buildings in the cities.
Rockets hit a private home in Sderot in addition to two other direct hits on two residential buildings in Ashkelon. No injuries were reported.
Unconfirmed footage taken from Ashkelon shows a damaged car parked among the rubble of the reported rocket strike. The Ashkelon resident whose home was hit by a rocket was not injured due to being inside a shelter, the Ashkelon municipality said.
Later on Wednesday night, a direct hit was reported on a private home in the Gaza border kibbutz of Nir Am. Infrastructural damage was done to the building, according to reports.
