21-year-old Pinchas Pshuzhman Hy”d, a young father of 2 children, was murdered today after being hit by a Gaza rocket in Ashdod.
Pshuzhman, a young Chareidi husband and father, was killed when a rocket exploded near his apartment building in Ashdod. He was injured by shrapnel from the exploding projectile.
MDA and United Hatzalah emergency first responders treated the victim at the scene then evacuated him to Assuta Hospital in Beer Sheva, where he later died from his wounds.
Pshuzhman’s death brings the death toll to 4, as Hamas fired hundreds of rockets into southern Israel on Sunday, injuring more and bringing life to a standstill across the region in the bloodiest fighting since a 2014 war.
The bloodshed marked the first Israeli fatalities from rocket fire since the 2014 war.
