Israel Air Force jets began striking Hamas targets across the Gaza Strip after several heavy barrages of rockets from the coastal enclave were fired towards southern Israel, the IDF said Monday evening. 

Incoming rocket sirens were activated across southern Israeli communities at around 4:30 p.m. and kept on wailing an hour later.
The army stated that more than 80 rockets had been fired from the strip, with several intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system. According to reports, others hit inside the city of Sderot and the community of Ofakim.

According to Magen David Adom, several people were treated by medics and paramedics following the rocket barrages.

A 19 year-old soldier was transferred to Soroka  hospital in Beersheba in critical condition after he was hit standing near a bus near the Gaza Border.

According to reports, the bus was hit by a Cornet anti-tank missile as it was traveling along the Gaza border near the Black Arrow memorial site in the Shaar Hanegev region.
