Hamas says it targeted Beersheba in response to West Bank killings

The Hamas military wing says it launched a heavy barrage of rockets at Beersheba in response to IDF strikes on homes in Gaza and the killing of Palestinians in West Bank protests.

At least 9 Palestinians were killed in clashes across the West Bank with IDF troops.

Beersheba is targetted in several rounds of fire after midnight. Most of the rockets fired at Beersheba landed in open areas, while several others were intercepted by Iron Dome.

Three women were lightly hurt running for shelter.

The IDF says it continues to strike Hamas rocket launching sites, most of them underground.
