Israeli air force now striking additional HAMAS targets
MORE ROCKETS FROM GAZA:
The Israel Air Force struck 80 Hamas targets late Friday night after rockets were fired into Israel's south, officials say. According to an Israel Defense Forces spokesperson, dozens of fighter jets and other IDF aircraft carried out the strikes in Gaza. Among the sites attacked include two major weapon manufacturing locations and five military training compounds.
The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted ten of the rockets fired into Israel's south, the military said. Media outlets in Gaza reported earlier that Israel struck targets in the area of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip in retaliation.
Eleven different alarm sirens were activated throughout the night in Israel's southern communities including the cities of Sderot and Eshkol Regional Council near the Gaza border.
IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot held an emergency meeting with senior officials in response to the escalations. Safety instructions to residents of Israel's Gaza-bordered communities were issued, warning residents not to have gatherings of up to 100 people in an open area, and 500 in a closed area.
Seven people have been treated for shock trauma in Sderot according to a Magen David Adom spokesperson. A 53-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy were lightly injured after running for protection when sirens sounded.
