Rocket launches from the Gaza Strip towards Israeli towns in the south continued throughout the night keeping the communities surrounding the Gaza Strip in shelters till the early hours of the morning.



Hamas fired over 70 rockets, 11 of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome.

In response, the IDF targeted Hamas terror cells and tunnels, reportedly killing Ali, reportedly the son of senior Hamas commander Abu Anas Ghandour.

17 Israelis were injured in the rocket attacks.

This is a developing story.
