(JNS.org) Another Gaza rocket was fired at Beersheba, southern Israel’s largest city, as part of a barrage of 20 rockets directed at Israel on Monday morning. No deaths or injuries were reported.
In response to the rocket fire, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) struck 14 targets in Gaza in two separate waves. The airstrikes killed nine terrorists, including seven Hamas operatives inside of a tunnel in Rafah, the Jerusalem Post reported.
Previously, on Sunday night, the IAF killed two Palestinian terrorists who were planning to carry out a rocket attack on Israel, according to the IDF.
On Saturday evening, Palestinian terrorists had fired a series of rockets at Beersheba and Ashkelon. The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted the rockets directed at Beersheba. Nearly 150 rockets have been launched towards Israel since mid-June.
