Palestinian Jihadists Fire Over
60 Rockets into Israel from Gaza

The Jerusalem Post
Eight rockets were fired at Ashkelon from Gaza on Monday afternoon, police said. Two of the rockets hit the city, one hitting a house directly and the other hitting a yard. No injuries were reported, but three people were treated for shock, Magen David Adom paramedics said.

The Iron Dome system intercepted over at least 19 rockets fired into southern Israel from the Gaza Strip Monday. Over 60 rockets struck Ashkelon, Ashdod, Beersheba, Sderot and other areas of the South, but caused no injuries.

A rocket fired by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip hit a school parking lot in Ashkelon on Monday morning, causing damage to a building but no injuries.

The Iron Dome rocket-defense system intercepted seven rockets fired at Ashkelon and Ashdod and another launched toward Beersheba. One rocket exploded in an open field outside of Beersheba.

Earlier Monday, rockets landed in open fields outside Eshkol and Sha'ar Hanegev, causing no injuries or damage, Army Radio reported.

Israeli strikes in Gaza killed at least ten civilians and two Islamic Jihad field commanders overnight Sunday, Palestinian sources reported. One of the strikes hit a police station in Gaza City. The IDF also hit over 80 targets in the Gaza Strip overnight Sunday, including rocket launchers, tunnels, training camps, weapons caches and terror cells that fired on Israel in recent days, bringing the total of targets to 1,350 since the start of Operation Pillar of Defense on Wednesday.

The morning rocket was the first since a house near Kiryat Malachi was struck late on Sunday evening. No injuries were reported in that attack, but the rocket caused damage to the house in a direct hit...

Seventy-six rockets exploded during the course of the day in southern Israel, with Ashdod coming under its heaviest barrage yet by seven Grad rockets. Six were intercepted and one smashed into a residential building, wounding two residents lightly. The Iron Dome intercepted 38 rockets heading for built-up areas on Sunday.

Soon after the Ashdod grad salvo on Sunday afternoon, the IDF targeted the home of the head of Hamas’s rocket program, Yahiya Abiya. Army sources said Abiya was directly responsible for the majority of the rockets that have been fired at Israel. It was unclear whether Abiya was hurt.

Palestinian medical sources said 11 people died in the bombing of the three-story building...

“Rocket attacks on Israel continue, but their ability to launch rockets is decreasing,” IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai said.

“Hamas is using the Palestinian population as a human shield. We have released footage of rocket fire from a mosque courtyard, prayer houses, public places and homes,” Mordechai added. “Many of their rockets are falling inside the Gaza Strip.”

The IDF has hit more than 1,200 terrorist targets in Gaza since the beginning of the operation.
