Volley of Gaza Rockets Fired at Israel

YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

Several rockets were fired at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip on Tuesday night, two of which were shot down by Iron Dome air defense batteries near Ashkelon.

Sirens alerting citizens of incoming rockets were sounded twice Tuesday evening in the Hof Ashkelon Regional council, as two rockets were fired at the area only minutes apart.

Another rocket exploded later in the evening, landing in a community in the Sedot Negev Regional Council. No injuries were reported, but a structure was lightly damaged, according to Ynet.

Over 20 rockets have been fired at Israel since Operation Brother’s Keeper to find Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frankel began a week and a half ago.
