A few days before the attack, Purim told friends she had a bad feeling. Immediately upon hearing that a rocket had fallen on Tuesday, she called her husband to check if he was okay. When no one answered, she was so certain that he had been in the attack that she left her work outside of the city and headed home. Yaakobov was the second fatality from Kassam rockets in less than a week. Last Wednesday, a Kassam rocket killed Fatima Slutsker. A total of seven Sderot residents have died in Kassam attacks.
