Israel said anticipating rocket fire at central Israel; air traffic diverted away from Gaza

Israel is preparing for the possibility that rockets will be fired from the Gaza Strip at central Israel tonight, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

Air traffic in and out of Israel has been diverted away from the Gaza Strip in light of concerns that terror groups in the enclave may fire rockets toward Israel.

Planes entering and leaving Israel are doing so through flightpaths to the north of Ben Gurion International Airport.
