Israeli military have registered about 300 missile launches from Gaza Strip and managed to intercept dozens of them, Sputnik reported citing Israeli army press service.
“As of now, about 300 rocket launches from the Gaza Strip at Israel have been detected. Dozens of rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome air and missile defense system," the IDF said in a statement.
Air-raid warning sirens continue to sound throughout the south of the country, warning residents of the continuation of Palestinian shelling, according to a report by Sputnik correspondent from Israel.
In response to the Palestinian shelling, the Israeli military attacked over 70 militant targets in the Gaza Strip from the ground and the air. According to local doctors, three Gaza Strip residents died in Israeli strikes. One of the Israeli airstrikes specifically targeted the Hamas-run Al-Aqsa TV station.
