Hamas Rocket Lands 100 Feet From Fox News Crew
At least one American was in considerable danger in Israel in recent days.
Fox News correspondent Trey Yingst.
Yingst was reporting from Sderot, Israel on Nov. 3, when he experienced a scenario that most of us only live through in our nightmares.
A hostile rocket landed 100 feet from Yingst and his Fox News crew.
Yingst showed that he's willing to do whatever it takes to get his story.
He actually ran toward the sound of the blast shortly after hearing it.
"Guys, we. We’re just. We could hear a direct impact. A rocket just slammed into the building right next to where we’re at. You can see soldiers just arrived on the scene," he said as he motored toward the rocket's landing site on live television.
"I just want to give you a little bit of time here, what the situation was here," he added. Yingst continued:
Okay. So just a moment ago. Sirens were sounding. We followed our plan. We got straight to cover. And then we heard a loud explosion. Rocking the ground right next to us. It appears there has been a direct impact. This was not intercepted. It was a massive explosion. And you can see the car right there has some damage. It appears there are no casualties. But this is very close to where reporters have been have been covering the situation along the border. And there is some sort of siren from inside the building going off. And just a pan here. Excuse me, sir. And you can see this car here has some damage to it. And this is all very fresh just a moment ago. So let me take you through what happened here, guys. We’re right along the Israel-Gaza border. This area has not been taking much fire recently.
Yingst added, "We saw something coming off the Gaza Strip. Sirens sounded. You have about 10 seconds to get to cover here. I’m a little out of breath because we ran straight to cover. Something slipped past Israel’s missile defense system, and it slammed into the ground. We’re not sure what sort of damage was done to the building. And in this building right here, it’s the same building we’ve been next to. It’s a kindergarten, actually, that was hit. There were no students inside. And it’s nighttime and it’s also Shabbat. But a lot of journalists around here, again, no casualties, but quite a lot of shrapnel in this area."
Talk about scary.
Please pray for everyone involved.
