Hamas strikes again: Mayor of Sderot describes buildings falling amidst attack


Sderot City along the Gaza border was the target once again for Hamas rockets on Thursday. A rocket launched from the Hamas hideouts in Gaza landing on the Yitzhak Shamir Road in the city destroyed cars parked on the road and left three people injured. Giving details about the attack, Sderot mayor Alon Davidi on Thursday said, “We have three people injured very seriously and lot of buildings falling in the town.”
Davidi urged the residents of Israel to pay attention to the alerts from the Army and municipality and asked them not to walk around the streets to save their lives.
“I want that the people of Israel, they must pay attention to the order of the Army and the order of the municipality. If you will be on streets you will die,” he said.
When asked how many people are in the town to be evacuated, he shared, “I want to evacuate everyone from here. I want them to have a safer place to stay so that they can stay there for a long time. About 20000 people need to get out of the town but they need help from the government to support them, to find a place to stay.” Meanwhile, Israeli Defence Forces said that Hamas brought ISIS flags to Israel when they had infiltrated various parts of South Israel last weekend. In a post shared on X, Israeli Defence Forces stated, “Hamas brought ISIS flags to massacre Israeli children, women and men. Hamas is a genocidal terrorist organization. Hamas is worse
than ISIS.”

The fate of an estimated 150 people abducted and taken to the Gaza Strip during the attack by Hamas is still unclear, the report said.
