After years of reporting on their procurement of higher grade missiles, the islamonazis of Gaza bring out the big boys.
Amid barrage of rockets, Iron Dome makes 2nd interception over greater Tel Aviv
Israel came under a heavy barrage of rocket fire on Tuesday night, with code red sirens sounding off in central Israel, the Jerusalem area and as far North as Binyamina.
More than 40 rockets were fired into Israel in the biggest ever salvo of long-range fire from Gaza.
The Iron Dome rocket defense system intercepted a number of rockets and no significant injuries have been reported in the attack.
An Iron Dome battery intercepted a projectile over the greater Tel Aviv area for the second time on Tuesday evening.
Two loud thuds were heard by residents in downtown Jerusalem shortly after a rocket siren went off in the capital at approximately 10 p.m. Thousands of city residents promptly entered bomb shelters, while others remained outside and in area cafes.
According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld none of the rockets fired from Gaza landed directly in the city of Jerusalem, although two rockets likely landed just outside the city.
Air raid sirens were also activated in cities including Rishon Lezion, Bat Yam, Holon and Bnei Barak, but sirens were not sounded in Tel Aviv.
The Israel Air Force struck 50 targets in Gaza in past two hours as part of its ongoing Operation Protective Edge.
Earlier on Tuesday evening, the Iron Dome rocket defense system intercepted a projectile near Tel Aviv over the city of Rishon Lezion, as air raid sirens sounded in central Israeli cities for the first time amid recent escalations.
