Rockets Fired into Israel from Gaza

After a period of relative silence since last year’s war in Gaza, terrorist rockets have again been launched at Israel. Yediot Achronot reports that at least one rocket landed in Israel, out of several that had been launched:

Code red sirens sounded in Ashdod and Lachish near Kiryat Gat in southern Israel Tuesday evening just after 9 p.m. An IDF Spokesperson confirmed that one rocket landed near Gan Yavne.

One resident in Lachish said, “There was a siren and we heard a big explosion.”

Israel’s Channel 2 initially reported that there had been, “an attempt to fire four rockets into southern Israel.” Meanwhile Channel 10 reported that three or rockets had landed in open territory inside Israel’s borders, but these reports have not yet been confirmed.

Stand for Israel will stay on top of this and keep you updated with any further developments.
