A Sderot school building suffered a direct rocket hit from Gaza terrorists. Miraculously, nobody was injured in the attack.
This is the second rocket attack within 24 hours from the Arab Muslim terrorists in Gaza.
Even though the building took a direct hit, miraculously, nobody was injured because the students had left a just short while earlier for the weekend Shabbat break.
The building houses a Chabad House and the Sderot Hesder Yeshiva, and luckily was mostly empty at the time of the rocket attack.

Residents of Sderot and the outlying area heard the red alert rocket alert siren which gave barely 15 seconds to run for cover before the rocket slammed into the building. Thousands of residents in the area went running for the bomb shelters.
Sderot Mayor Calls for IDF Retaliation Attack on Gaza
Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi is calling for the IDF to carry out a large-scale “military operation” in Gaza to stop the renewed Arab Muslim rockets attacks from Gaza
Speaking Thursday night in response to the rocket attack tonight in Sderot, Davidi said, “This situation can not continue. As I said in the past, only a military operation will bring quiet to our area.”
“[Hamas leaders Ismail] Haniyeh and [Yahya] Sinwar are ‘sons of death’ and we should hit them first,” Davidi said, urging the IDF to carry out targeted assassinations against the top leaders of Hamas.
“The precious residents of Sderot and the Gaza envelope are entitled to raise their children in a quiet and routine manner, as are all residents of the country. We will continue to develop the city and be blessed with thousands of new families,” he added.
“Terrorism will not defeat us. ”
