None of rockets from latest barrage land inside populated areas

None of the rockets and mortar shells fired at the Eshkol and Sha’ar Hanegev regions of southern Israel in recent hours have landed inside populated areas, spokespeople for the regions say, crediting successful interceptions by the Iron Dome air defense system.

In one case, an Iron Dome interceptor missile did land on an empty chicken coop in the Eshkol region, damaging the building and the solar panels on the roof.
