Gaza Terror Rockets Target Jerusalem Area


Reportedly, a rocket was shot down by the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system over Modi'in, about 25 minutes' drive from Jerusalem, but residents of Jerusalem reported hearing several booms, indicating there may have been more than one rocket fired at the region.

Hamas has recently followed a pattern of raining missiles on the communities in the Gaza environs through the course of the day, and at night targeting major cities in an attempt to create terror and panic as millions of urban residents are forced to run for shelter.
