The Iron Dome rocket defense system intercepted five rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza at Ashkelon early Thursday morning. An additional rocket may have landed in an open, uninhabited area.

There were no injuries in the Palestinian attack.

The IAF responded to the rocket fire on Wednesday by attacking four targets in the northern Gaza Strip: a terror site, an underground rocket launcher, a weapons storage facility and a weapons manufacturing site, the IDF Spokesperson said. The spokesperson confirmed “direct hits” for all the targets.
