(Worthy News) - A rocket shot from Gaza was shot down by the Iron Dome anti-missile system early Thursday, the Israel Defense Forces said, as cross-border violence in the volatile region persisted for a second day.
The army said the rocket was the latest of nine projectiles to be fired at Israel from Gaza since Wednesday evening, as fighting ramped up following several days of shaky calm along the restive border.
The IDF said all the missiles landed in open areas near the border fence. There were no reports of injuries or damage. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
