Abe Selig, Jerusalem Post 12/27/2008
In response to Saturday’s IAF air strikes on Hamas. Here is a list in Gaza, Palestinians fired over 80 rockets and mortar shells at areas throughout the western Negev. In Netivot, 58-year-old Beber Vaknin was killed and five people were wounded - one seriously - when their house was hit by a rocket. All the wounded were evacuated to Beersheba's Soroka Hospital. "After the first rocket landed, people wanted to see what had happened," one of Valina's neighbors told The Jerusalem Post on Saturday night. "He went outside to look around when the rocket hit, and he was killed by the shrapnel. The medics said the shrapnel pierced his heart. " Vaknin was unmarried and held a clerical position in the southern town. - VIDEO - Dozens of Kassam rockets fired at Israel in wake of IAF attack
The Yeshiva World » Netivot Victim Identified as Beber Vaknin... The victim of the fatal Shabbos rocket attack in Netivot has been identified as Beber Vaknin, 58, a male, not a female as was reported by authorities earlier on motzei Shabbos.
Vaknin, a bachelor, was unable to reach the bomb shelter on time. IDF Homefront Command officials report that Netivot officials have 30 second from the sounding of the siren until impact, twice the time of Gaza-belt and Greater Sderot Area residents who are located much closer to the Gaza border.

Vaknin's "sister," Eti Amir, says, "It hurts me, it goes to my heart that it happened to him and that I wasn't there next to him in his last breath. It hurts me a lot, it drives me crazy when I'm thinking about it."
