2 Thai workers in Israel injured in Hamas rocket attack

Two Thai workers, a man and a woman, were injured on Wednesday after Hamas militants in Gaza launched about 150 rockets and mortars on Israeli towns in southern Israel, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Busadee Satipitaks said this morning.

 

Ms Busadee, citing an initial report from the Thai Embassy in Tel Aviv, said the Thai woman was seriously injured while the man sustained minor injuries.

Thai Ambassador Prenprapa Vongkovit has visited them at a hospital and both are now safe. The woman, who was seriously wounded, is now able to speak, she said.

The incident reportedly happened after sunset on Wednesday when Hamas militants in Gaza launched rockets and mortars at Sderot and other towns in southern Israel.  The rocket and mortar fire damaged cares, homes and factories.
