Update: Man killed by Qassam attack on Ashkelon

From Ynet News, 1 March 2010, 11:51 Israel time, by Shmulik Hadad:

A Qassam rocket fired from the northern Gaza Strip landed near hothouses in the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council. A foreign worker was seriously wounded as a result, and emergency medical teams are trying to resuscitate him.

Update from JPOST, 18/03/2010 12:02 Israel time:

Fatality apparently Thai worker in greenhouse near Netiv Ha’asara.

A man in his 30s was killed on Wednesday afternoon when a Kassam rocket fired by Gaza terrorists hit the Netiv Ha’asara area. The fatality was apparently a Thai worker in one of the greenhouses in the area.

He was evacuated to Ashkelon’s Barzilai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

On Wednesday, two Kassam rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip, landing not far from Sderot.

Following a relatively long period of calm, the Code Red alarm system sounded over Sderot once again, followed by an explosion.

Two people suffered from shock as a result of the blast, one of them a girl. They were treated by an MDA team and evacuated to a shock treatment center.
