The following article, Fox News Reporter Nearly Blown Up by Hamas Rocket During Live Broadcast, was first published on Flag And Cross.

A Fox News reporter covering Israel’s war against terror was nearly struck by a rocket fired by Hamas from inside Gaza Friday as he and other journalists had converged near a kindergarten.

Fox News correspondent Trey Yingst was interviewed about the blast, which damaged the building and a number of vehicles, near Israel’s border with Gaza in the southern part of the country.

Fox News anchor Kayleigh McEnany was interviewed just a moment after the blast as alarms were still going off and while Israeli soldiers and police officers were converging on the area to check for injuries.

Shrapnel from the projectile, which had slipped past Israel’s Iron Dome system, could be seen embedded into walls.

“You can actually see a piece of the rocket,” Yingst told McEnany. “So, this is a small rocket and what you’re looking at is shrapnel from the rocket. They are collecting this as we speak.”

The reporter commented that Israel had been targeted by so many rockets that the Iron Dome could not keep up.

He also showed the network’s viewers a piece of the missile.

“That’s the engine from the rocket,” he said.

Yingst further explained that the Iron Dome system intentionally lets some rockets through if they are headed toward areas that have been evacuated.

The rationale is it preserves previous rockets that could be more effective to save lives in populated areas.

A video Yingst later shared showed the moment the projectile exploded within 100 feet or so, he said, of where he and other reporters were stationed.

He said on his X page the video was taken by CNN photojournalist Matthias Somm.

Later, Yingst uploaded his own video on X in which he described the harrowing moment in which the missile exploded near him.

He offered the video as an example of how little time Israeli civilians have to react – less than 10 seconds – when a projectile is fired and not intercepted.

“It gives you a sense of just how little time people have in these southern communities to respond when there is rocket fire,” he said. “It is just by chance that no one was injured or killed.”
