An Ashdod synagogue was hit by a rocket Friday afternoon, injuring three people lightly.

Earlier in the day heavy rocket and mortar fire on southern Israel moderately wounded another Israeli in Beersheva, Haaretz reported.

Two men in their 20s and a woman in her 40s were injured by shrapnel from the Ashdod rocket. All three were taken to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.

A senior medic told Haaretz that the rocket damaged the synagogue. “There was a great commotion and many hysterical frightened people,” the medic added.

In Gaza, Hamas reportedly killed 18 Palestinians suspected of being Israeli collaborators on Friday. Seven were reportedly shot in a public execution outside, and another 11 were executed at the Gaza City police headquarters.
