The Israeli military says over 180 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip since Wednesday night, injuring at least seven people, including one woman seriously, and causing dozens more to suffer panic attacks.
The Iron Dome missile defense system has intercepted 30 incoming projectiles headed for population centers. Most of the remaining rockets landed in open fields, the army says.
In response to the attacks, which have damaged Israeli homes, businesses and infrastructure, the Israeli military says it has bombed approximately 150 targets in the Gaza Strip.
