Rockets fired by Muslim terrorists from Gaza at civilians in southern Israel
BREAKING: Rockets were fired by Muslim terrorists in Gaza towards southern Israel.
Sirens sounded in the towns of Sderot and Ibim.
Local residents report two explosions heard over Sderot.
“A rocket was fired from Gaza at Israeli civilians. The rocket was intercepted mid-air by the Iron Dome Aerial Defense System”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
Yesterday, IDF forces identified an armed Muslim terrorist who was approaching the security border fence in order to invade Israel from southern Gaza. An IDF drone eliminated the threat.
The latest escalation with Gaza began last month 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.
