(ANSA) – TEL AVIV, 06 AUGUST – There are over 200 rockets of Islamic Jihad launched from Gaza against Israel in just under 24 hours of conflict. Of these – according to some estimates cited by the media – about 130 have crossed the border and most have been intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system. The others fell in open areas or at sea and about 30 in the Strip itself. In Sderot – an Israeli town one step away from Gaza – a rocket hit a house causing material damage: the inhabitants were already in the shelter at the time of the blow. In the coastal city of Ashkelon 20 people were treated in the Barzilai hospital for injuries sustained during the rush to shelters or for panic attacks. Meanwhile, the army’s attacks on the Strip are being carried out, targeting the military posts of the Jihad and weapons depots. (HANDLE).
