Two Stories the HP Doesn't Publish

For those of you who follow other Israel blogs, these news items won't be news. But the Huffington Post still hasn't published them, so we still need to call them on it.
A long-range Grad rocket fired from Gaza destroyed one home and seriously damaged another in the southern Israeli city of Netivot.
The homes were hit with one rocket in the early Sunday morning attack. In the home that was destroyed, a resident saved himself by running into a bathroom with a concrete ceiling, Ynet reported. The rest of the house fell down around him, according to the report.
Three people suffered from shock in the attack. Netivot, which is located between Gaza and Beersheba, also had been hit Friday morning by two rockets.
A second rocket landed in Beersheba but did not cause any damage. Six people suffered from shock in the attack.
Following the attacks, school was canceled Sunday in Beersheba, as well as in two other southern Israeli cities, Ashdod and Omer.

 A 50-year-old man was killed in a suspected hit-and-run accident Sunday morning on Road 505 between the Jewish settlements of Oranit and Elkana.

The man, a security guard who lives in one of the area's communities, was apparently trying to document the entry of illegal Palestinian workers into Israel when he was hit by a car and critically injured.

Police are searching for the driver, who fled the scene of the incident.

Judea and Samaria District Police Commander Amos Yaakov said that "the security guard arrived to document the entry of an illegal resident and tried to stop the vehicle, which kept going at high speed, hit and killed him. It was an intentional hit. We are currently investigating all leads."
