Magen David Adom (MDA) Spokesman Zaki Heller said its paramedics on Tuesday treated 112 Israelis injured by rocket fire, including three who were wounded by shrapnel, one seriously and two lightly. A further 27 were injured while running for safe rooms.

MDA also treated some 82 people who suffered from shock.

According to National Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, 170 rockets were fired into Israel on Tuesday. Of those, 53 were intercepted by the Iron Dome. Every major city in the south was hit by rocket strikes, Rosenfeld added, including five separate strikes on Beersheba alone.
