An Israeli man was killed and dozens more were wounded on Saturday night when Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip unleashed a torrent of mortar and rocket fire on southern Israel.

More than 40 rockets and mortars were fired from Gaza between Saturday evening and mid-morning Sunday. The attacks included a number of medium-range Grad missiles.

The attack that killed 59-year-old Moshe Ami occurred in the coastal town of Ashkelon. Moshe was driving home to his family when the air raid sirens sounded. His partner, Ela Costin, called Moshe to make sure he was alright, but Moshe responded that he had been wounded.
