Residents of the Tel Aviv metropolitan area report hearing the sounds of explosions overhead, likely indicating that the Iron Dome air defense battery intercepted some of the incoming rockets from the Gaza Strip.

The rocket attack triggered sirens in cities and towns east of Tel Aviv, including Rishon Lezion and Ben Gurion Airport.

Video footage from Rishon Lezion shows what appears to be an interception by the Iron Dome.
