Mass Rocket Attack at Israel Moments Before Ceasefire to Start


Just minutes before a 72-hour ceasefire was to go into effect this morning (Tuesday), sirens went off in multiple locations throughout Israel. Rockets were fired at communities in the Gaza Envelope, Kiryat Gat, Kiryat Malachi, Ashdod, Ma'ale Adumim and around Judea, and more.  Explosions were heard in Gush Dan and Jerusalem.

The IDF reported that last night was the quietest night since the beginning of Operation 'Protective Edge'.
