More than 19,000 unguided rockets have been launched at Israel since the start of the war in October, the Israeli military says.

The projectiles were mostly fired from the Gaza Strip, although the portion of rocket attacks from Lebanon has been steadily growing in recent months.

Thousands of those rockets have been intercepted by air defenses.

The tally only includes projectiles that crossed into Israeli territory. Israel has previously said hundreds or even more rockets launched from Gaza misfired and landed inside the Strip.

It also doesn’t include scores of guided anti-tank missiles fired across the Israel-Lebanon border.
