One intercepted by Iron Dome, second hits open field, third lands inside Strip; fresh attacks come after 36 rockets fired at Israel overnight Fri-Sat amid ongoing Jerusalem unrest
Palestinian terrorists launched multiple rockets toward southern Israel on Saturday night, one of which was shot down while another struck an open field, as attacks from the enclave continued into a second day and threatened to intensify. Several projectiles failed to clear the border and landed inside the Strip.
The first rocket attack came at 9 p.m., triggering sirens in the town of Sderot and nearby communities, sending residents into bomb shelters. Soldiers operating the Iron Dome shot down the incoming projectile, the Israel Defense Forces said.
An 18-year-old woman suffered an acute anxiety attack because of the alarms and was treated at the nearby Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon, the hospital said. The launch of the rocket headed toward Sderot from the area of Jabaliya in northern Gaza was captured by an Israeli security camera.
