Gaza terrorists bombarded cities in Israel's southern region Saturday night. One person was killed when a Grad rocket hit Be'er Sheva, and another two were critically wounded. Four others were wounded as well, and are in serious-to-moderate condition.

Earlier in the day a 4-month-old baby, a 20-year-old man and 9-year-old boy were among those wounded when a Grad Katyusha missile fired by Gaza terrorists struck a home in Ofakim.

In total, terrorists have fired 45 rockets since Thursday night, wounding a total of 22 people. Four are in serious condition, suffering life-threatening wounds.

The Iron Dome system has shot down some rockets. On Saturday night it took out a rocket aimed at Be'er Sheva.

Hamas has officially ended an often-broken ceasefire with Israel, openly involving Gaza's leadership in the attacks.

The IDF has responded by hitting several terrorist outposts in Gaza.
