(Worthy News) - The IDF attacked 160 targets in the Gaza Strip after more than 460 rockets were launched into the South in less than 24 hours, including a new type of rocket fired by Islamic Jihad into Ashkelon.

Some 100 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, the military said. While the majority of others fell in open territory without causing damage or injuries, another 20 or so fell in Ashkelon, Sderot, and in several other Gaza border communities.

The security cabinet convened for six hours on Monday and was briefed by senior IDF officers on the ongoing rocket fire and the military’s response to terror elements in the Strip. According to an official statement, the cabinet instructed the military to continue operating as long as necessary. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
