(Worthy News) - Over 90 rockets were launched into Israel from the Gaza Strip Saturday morning and Israel responded with strikes as a fragile ceasefire along the border again faltered.

Warning sirens were heard in Rehovot, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Sderot and multiple communities in the Eshkol and Sha’ar Henegev Regional Councils. The Iron Dome missile defense system was activated in several instances. In Eshkol one rocket fell inside a community but did not cause damage.

In response to the attacks, the IDF said the air force struck at least two rocket launchers in the Strip, and tanks fired at several Hamas posts. The Hamas-run Gaza health ministry said a 22-year-old man was killed and four people were injured by Israeli strikes. It did not say whether the casualties were people affiliated to any terror group.
