FOX News’ Trey Yingst takes cover from Hamas rocket attack during live report

FOX News foreign correspondent Trey Yingst was forced to take cover from a rocket while reporting live in the Israeli town of Sderot that sits near the Gaza border. 

Yingst was reporting outside a police station that was reduced to rubble after a gun battle between Hamas militants and Israeli police officers. Yingst said the Israeli town was  one of the first places that Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants entered on Saturday morning before murdering more than 800 people.

“More than 800 people killed, both soldiers and civilians, but the vast majority were families,” Yingst said. “They were people who were at home with their kids, women and children. This was not a combatant on combatant situation. These militants did not come into southern Israel and simply fire on Israeli soldiers at the bases along the border. They came, and they slaughtered children.”

Yingst and his team were able to capture Iron Dome interceptors as he instructed “everybody get down” and “just go flat.”
