Dimona mayor says 1 rocket shot down, 1 falls in open area

Benny Biton, mayor of the Negev city of Dimona, tells Channel 2 that one rocket from Gaza was intercepted, while another fell in an open area.

Dimona is an especially sensitive site, as it is home to the Negev Nuclear Research Center, widely assumed to be home of Israel’s nuclear weapons program.
