“Two rockets were fired from Gaza toward the Israeli city of Beer Sheva. Both rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome Aerial Defense System”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
First responders treated nine people. All of them were lightly wounded on their way to shelters or with trauma symptoms.
Shrapnel from an Iron Dome interceptor fell in an open area causing a small fire.
Earlier today, hundreds of Muslim terrorists marched in Jabaliya, north of Gaza city, demanding the resumption of rocket attacks against Israeli civilians.
The latest escalation began on Tuesday when an Israeli strike eliminated a top Islamic Jihad terrorist, Baha Abu al-Ata and brought a wave of rocket fire into Israel in response.
Israel’s Iron Dome defense system intercepted 90 percent of more than 450 rockets launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza.
Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza reported 34 terrorists eliminated and 111 wounded during two days of Israeli retaliatory strikes.
A ceasefire brokered by Egyptian and UN officials was agreed as the flare-up raised fears of a new all-out conflict.
Since the ceasefire went into effect, 15 rockets have been fired towards Israel.
