Israelis in south gird for tense night ahead

Israelis in the south are facing a tense night ahead, after a violent Israeli-Hamas clash in Gaza, the details of which remain hazy.

Rocket sirens have sounded half a dozen times since the outbreak of fighting, with the army saying two rockets were fired from Gaza and intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

Israeli pundits are describing the incident as “exceptional” in its seriousness. But the army has yet to provide its account of the fighting, several hours after the firefight.
