IDF: 360 rockets fired at Israel

Over 360 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at southern Israel since Tuesday morning, with 60% of them striking open fields where they caused neither injury nor damage, the army says.

Soldiers operating the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted 90% of the incoming projectiles that were heading toward populated areas, the military says.

“Continue listening to the instructions of the Home Front Command,” the IDF says.
