The state on Sunday responded to a petition submitted by a joint parents and Ashkelon municipality committee that demanded the protection of all educational institutions in the city against rocket attacks.

State representatives said that there is no justified rationale to protect Ashkelon any more than other cities that have been subject to rocket attacks in the past such as Haifa, Kiryat Gat and Beersheba.
