Terrifying video reportedly captures the moment a rocket slammed into a bus in the Israeli city of Holon just south of Tel Aviv, wounding three people, including a 5-year-old girl. People are seen standing in the street before a loud explosion is heard and a massive blaze erupts in the background. The man filming the explosion is heard saying, “Calm down, I’m here, calm down!” in Hebrew after the explosion. The Israel Defense Forces said the projectile, “one of the hundreds” fired by Hamas, struck an unoccupied passenger bus on Sokolov Street, the Israeli Ynet News reported. Officials with Magen David Adom, the country’s EMS service, said that a 50-year-old man, a 30-year-old woman and a young girl were taken to a hospital. Meanwhile, Israel’s firefighting service said Wednesday that it has almost completely extinguished a blaze at a petroleum facility in southern Israel that was struck by a rocket fired by Hamas militants. It landed Tuesday night near a Petroleum and Energy Infrastructures Ltd. facility south of Ashkelon during a major barrage by Gaza militants. Israel Fire and Rescue Services said that 20 teams have been working for 25 hours to extinguish the massive inferno.
