Hamas Attempts Strike On Israeli Nuclear Site

After a day of counter-strikes between Hamas and Israeli forces, rockets are fired at the highly secure Dimona nuclear site.

Hamas militants have fired rockets towards the Dimona nuclear reactor facility, an Israeli military spokesman has said.

The official said three rockets were detected and the “Iron Dome” defensive missile system was activated.

Writing on Twitter, the official said: “A few minutes ago, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza fired three rockets at Dimona. Two fell in open areas, Iron Dome intercepted the other.”

The Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, said it “launched three M75 rockets at Dimona”.The rockets have a range of about 80km (50 miles).

The strike attempt comes after the Israeli military has said it has shot down rockets fired by Palestinian militants at other areas, as Israel’s major air offensive over the Gaza Strip approaches its third day.

A spokesperson for the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) said at least eight rockets sent from Gaza were intercepted over Tel Aviv, Ashdod and Ashkelon on Wednesday.

Israel said a rocket hit the city of Zichron Yaakov on Wednesday afternoon, which is some 120km (75 miles) from Gaza, representing the longest-range rocket strike by Hamas on the state to date.

The IDF claims at least 48 missiles, sent by Hamas, which controls Gaza, “struck Israel” since midnight.
