ASHKELON – In the past 24 hours, Iranian-backed terrorist groups operating in the Gaza Strip fired over 600 rockets at Israel, killing three civilians. On Sunday, amidst the attack, Watch Jerusalem host Brent Nagtegaal visited the Gaza Strip border region on a media tour, and had to seek refuge from more rockets. Ironically, that safety was found with family members of a man that died from an attack overnight.

Here is the account of that visit.
