Residents of Ashdod refused to allow the Grad rockets that exploded in the city Friday affect their weekend plans, as many locals spent the unusually sunny day at the beach enjoying the warm weather.
Residents of Ashdod and neighboring towns were startled early Friday evening by a siren, after two rockets were launched from Gaza at the southern city. The two Grads exploded in the Ashdod area, one of them near a residential neighborhood and another further away.
"I was a bit worried," admitted Nadav Attias, 29, who arrived at the Ashdod beach on Saturday with his girlfriend. "But I won't let hostilities dictate my life."
Attias, currently living in Beersheba, came to visit his parents in Ashdod over the weekend when the grad missiles exploded.
