Dismissing earlier reports, army says Iron Dome did not intercept Gaza rockets

Dismissing earlier reports, the IDF says that the Iron Dome missile defense system did not intercept the two rockets fired from Gaza.

“The alert and warning systems operated as required. No interceptions were made by aerial defense systems. No damage or injuries were reported. There are no special instructions for the civilian home front,” the army says.

Both rockets landed in open fields in the Gush Dan region of central Israel, according to the military.

The IDF declined to specify whether the Iron Dome was activated at all.
