Rocket fired from Gaza intercepted over Israel for third straight day

posted in: world news 0
A rocket, fired from the Gaza Strip, was intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system over the southern city of Sderot Sunday night, in the third straight day of rocket attacks against Israel.

Some five residents of Sderot were lightly injured while running to shelters. It was the fourth rocket fired at Israel from Gaza Strip since Operation Guardian of the Walls in May.

Shortly before the rocket fire on Sunday, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi warned that the IDF would “protect the Gaza border and will not accept any violation of [Israel’s] sovereignty of any kind. We are vigorously attacking for every violation and we will continue to do so, and if they escalate, Hamas and the Gaza Strip will pay a heavy price.”

The rocket fire comes after the IDF struck Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday night after a rocket was fired from Gaza into Israel on Saturday evening.

Sunday also marked the anniversary of the completion of Israel’s unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip in 2005.
