Rocket sirens sound in the southern cities of Ashkelon of Ashdod, as well as the town of Sderot and a number of Gaza border communities as a barrage of projectiles is fired from the Strip.

Missile defense systems intercept at least two projectiles.

There are no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

Earlier on Saturday the Israel Defense Forces said at least 160 rockets have been fired at Israel since Friday afternoon, however dozens more have been launched from Gaza since that update.
