More rockets from Gaza
Palestinian terrorists in Gaza fired two rockets toward south Israel at dawn on Monday. A number of explosions were heard shortly after the “Color Red” siren warning of the incoming rockets sounded in communities located within the Ashkelon Beach Regional Council.
One of the rockets was apparently intercepted by the “Iron Dome” air defense system, while the other apparently landed in an open area. There were no reports of injury or damage.
In response to the rocket fire, Israeli aircraft attacked two rocket launchers in north Gaza and identified direct hits, the army’s Spokesperson’s Unit said.
