Rockets fired by Muslim terrorists from Gaza at civilians in southern Israel
BREAKING: Three rockets were fired by Muslim terrorists in Gaza towards southern Israel.
Code Red rocket alert sirens sounded in Netivot, Sharsheret and Alumim.
According to initial reports, the rockets exploded in open areas near the city of Netivot.
A number of people were lightly wounded after falling over while running to bomb shelters in Netivot.
“Three rockets were just fired from Gaza into Israel. That’s 13 launches fired from Gaza at Israeli civilians over the last week”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
Earlier this week, the IDF deployed additional Iron Dome missile defense batteries across Israel as preparation for a possible escalation and rocket attacks from Gaza.
Reports suggest the Islamic Jihad terror group, under pressure from Iran, is attempting to break the status quo between Israel and Hamas and will continue to fire rockets into southern Israel.
