TENSIONS SOAR: Gaza Rockets Intercepted Over Southern Israel


August 25, 2019 6:24 pm

The Israeli military says three rockets have been launched from the Gaza Strip, setting off air raid sirens in southern Israel.

The military said two were intercepted by Israel’s missile defense system Sunday evening. The third one landed near Highway 35 and started a small fire.

MDA provided treatment to 7 people in Sderot, including a woman who was moderately injured on her way to a bomb shelter.

The fire from Gaza comes after Israel launched airstrikes into Syria on Saturday against what it said were Iranian drones being readied to attack Israel. Two alleged Israeli drones also crashed in the Lebanese capital overnight.

It was not immediately clear who fired the projectiles from Gaza. Palestinian terrorists have stepped up launches in recent days, frustrated by the ongoing Israeli-Egyptian blockade on Gaza.
