A barrage of seven rockets was fired from Gaza towards southern Israel on Monday evening, around 11:00 p.m.

The rockets exploded in open regions in the city of Be’er Sheva, causing no physical injuries or damages.

Two rockets were also fired towards the city of Ashdod. One rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, and a second was exploded in an open region.

Yet another rocket exploded in an open area in the Eshkol region, causing no physical injuries or damages.

Sirens were also heard in the city of Ashkelon and the vicinity.

Rocket attacks on Monday also targeted central Israel, including Holon, Bat Yam, Lod, and Rishon LeZion.

Earlier on Monday, the IDF released photos and videos that offered irrefutable proof that Hamas terrorists were indeed using civilian neighborhoods and facilities – including hospitals – to fire rockets at Israel.
