The Israel Defense Forces says Palestinians launched 22 rockets from the Gaza Strip.

The IDF says four of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system, and 16 landed in open areas.

However, police say they are dealing with five separate rocket impact sites in urban areas.

One of the rockets hit a construction site in the city of Sderot, seriously wounding a man, according to medics.

Footage circulating online shows another rocket impact site on a street in Sderot.
