The Israel Defense Forces says some 200 rockets were fired toward Israel from the Gaza Strip from Monday night to Tuesday morning, dozens of which have been intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

The military says it has conducted retaliatory strikes on roughly 130 targets in the Strip, including the home of a top Hamas commander, Hamas’s intelligence headquarters, two attack tunnels that came near the security barrier and rocket production and storage sites.
