Hamams fired a volley of rockets at the Gush Dan (Greater Tel Aviv) and Shefela (Coastal) regions on Tuesday. 

Two rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system over Gush Dan; no damage was reported, but Magen David Adom (MDA) teams provided medical care to nine patients suffering from trauma and light injuries from running into protected areas. 

A third rocket hit the town of Yehud shortly afterward, decimating a private home. No injuries were reported but three people have been treated for emotional shock. 

Earlier this morning, the Iron Dome system intercepted seven rockets fired from Gaza at Ashdod and the surrounding communities.

Another rocket exploded in the yard of an educational center in Ashdod; there were no injuries but damage was reported. 

Over 1,800 rockets have been fired at Israeli civilians since Operation Protective Edge began fifteen days ago.

Hamas terrorists purposely target civilian men, women and children.
