    about the term "rocket-attacked"

    Dear sir/madam,
    We often read in news stories about rocket attacks in our area. I want to know if we can use "rocket-attacked" instead of "came under rocket attack".
    For example:
    1. The police took action after coming under a rocket attack.
    Or
    2. The police took action after being rocket-attacked.

    Are both of the above statements are correct? Or please explain which one is better?
