IDF: Over 1,180 strikes in Gaza since fighting began, 3,150 rockets fired at Israel

Since the start of fighting in Gaza last week between the Israeli military and Hamas, the Israel Defense Forces says it has struck over 1,180 targets linked to Palestinian terror groups.

Some 3,150 rockets have been fired toward Israel since last Monday, 460 of which failed to clear the border and landed in the Strip, according to the IDF.

It also says the Iron Dome missile defense system has an interception rate of around 90 percent. Terrorists have been firing large barrages of rockets in an apparent bid to overwhelm the system.
