Rocket reported shot down over Ariel

Following a massive rocket barrage sent from Gaza to the Jerusalem and Ashdod areas, several rockets are shot down by the Iron Dome.

One rocket is reported by Channel 2 shot down near the West Bank city of Ariel, which would mark the first time a rocket has targeted the Samaria region of the northern West Bank.

Ariel is about 85 kilometers from Gaza.

Two rockets are also reported shot down over Gan Yavne.

It is not yet clear how many rockets were fired during the large salvo, which set off several consecutive sirens in Ashdod.

No damage or injuries are reported.
