YERUSHALAYIM — The Iron Dome air defense system intercepted an incoming rocket from Gaza on Wednesday afternoon which was headed for Sderot, the IDF confirmed.

Footage from the attack showed what appeared to be an interceptor missile taking down the rocket.

Red alert sirens sounded in Sderot, as well as in Kibbutz Ivam and Nir and residents reported hearing multiple explosions. The Sderot municipality and Sdot Negev regional council said no damage was caused in the attack.

However, a woman in her 50s was lightly hurt after slipping as she ran to a bomb shelter in Sderot. The Magen David Adom ambulance service took her to a hospital for treatment.

National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir commented shortly thereafter: “The shooting from Gaza will not stop me from continuing to work to abolish the ‘summer camp’ conditions enjoyed by murderous terrorists. I give my backing to the Prison Services to enter the wings and restore order. I asked for an urgent cabinet meeting this evening to examine ways of responding to the launch of the missiles from Gaza,” he said, according to Arutz Sheva.
