The long-range rocket was intercepted by the David’s Sling medium-range air defense system, a military source says.

Hamas launched an Ayyash 250 rocket toward the southern city of Eilat in a round of fighting in May 2021.

Before that launch, the group’s range was thought to max out at 160 kilometers.
