Iron Dome intercepts two Hamas rockets over Tel Aviv

(JPost) The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted two long-range rockets fired at Tel Aviv on Sunday evening. No injuries or damage were reported.

Hamas claimed responsibility for firing at the city.

It was the second strike on Israel's commercial capital on Sunday. In the earlier attack, one person was hurt by falling debris from a rocket that was intercepted south of the city.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip fired over 100 rockets towards a number of Israeli cities Sunday morning, striking among others, Beersheba, Ashdod, Ashkelon and Sderot. The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted four rockets fired toward Tel Aviv, and 30 overall in different areas throughout the day.
