Southern sports teams carry on training despite rocket fire

The escalating hostilities between Israel and Gaza militants have also begun to disrupt the region's sports clubs, with Ashdod SC players and staff forced to run for cover during training on Tuesday.

The soccer club moved its training sessions to the Yud Alef Stadium as it has a safe room, but one of the many sirens on Tuesday morning caught the players while they were undergoing a session in the gym of the club's academy.

The players quickly found cover in a nearby safe room, something most of them have already become accustomed to from Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012.

The team relocated to Tel Aviv during Operation Pillar of Defense, and it may ultimately decide to take similar action should the rocket fire on Ashdod persist.
