The latest Israel Defense Forces data put the number of rockets launched toward Israel by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group at 361.

Of them, 70 fell short in the Gaza Strip, according to the latest data, which is as of 4 p.m.

The military says the Iron Dome missile defense system has demonstrated a 95 percent success rate at intercepting projectiles fired toward populated areas.

Earlier today, a factory in a town close to the border and a home in Sderot were hit by rocket attacks. Three people, including two soldiers, were also lightly hurt in a separate mortar bombardment near a town in the Eshkol Regional Council.
