The attack triggered Code Red incoming rocket sirens at around 5:20 a.m. throughout the Sharon and Emek Hefer regions and a loud explosion was heard after the rocket struck the home in the community of Mishmeret north of Kfar Saba.

The strike set off a fire in the home, destroying it completely.

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon visited the house where the rocket landed and said that “‘The bomb shelter saved the life of my family.’ This is what the father of the family said to me and that is a message to all the residents of Israel, as soon as you hear an alarm – go to the bomb shelter. I do not wish anyone to go through such an event, but if there is an alarm, do not be lazy and go to the bomb shelter.”

Magen David Adom rescue services said that seven people, including two children and an infant, were treated for wounds and evacuated to Meir Hospital.
