Hamas Disturbs Sabbath Calm with Rocket Barrage


As Israelis were welcoming the Sabbath on Friday evening, Hamas terrorists had plans of their own, firing five rockets towards the south.

Two rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system over the city of Netivot, two rockets exploded outside a community in the Eshkol region, and a fifth rocket exploded in an open area of the Sdot Negev Regional Council.
