According to the Israel Defence Forces, the building hit belong to the Chabad-Lubavitch movement and contains a synagogue and a school.

The attack was the second of the day at southern Israel from Gaza after the Iron Dome air-defense system intercepted a missile just after midnight.

As a result of that attack, the IDF struck “underground terror infrastructure” in a Hamas compound in the Gaza Strip.

On Wednesday, Israel announced that it imposed a full naval closure of the Strip after several arson and explosive attacks from the coastal territory throughout the day.

The latest rocket attacks follow last month’s intense two-day flare-up between Israel and Palestinian terror groups in Gaza.

    The Yeshiva building damaged last night in S’derot is a branch of the main Hesder Yeshiva in S’derot. Thank G-d it was reinforced concrete structure as there were some students in the Brit Midrash who , obviously, suffered shock.
