Rocket barrage at central Israel; two rockets intercepted over Tel Aviv

Minutes before a ceasefire is supposed to come into effect, a barrage of rockets is fired at central Israel.

According to Channel 12 news, two rockets are intercepted above Tel Aviv.

The same TV station also reports a rocket intercepted above Ben Gurion Airport, but the airports authority says this is incorrect. It also says the airport is functioning as usual

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it has not received any reports of direct injuries from the barrage, one of the heaviest since the conflict erupted on Friday.

MDA says it treated several people who were lightly hurt while running to protected areas, as well as a number of people suffering from shock.
