Seventy percent of the rockets landed in open fields, and the Iron Dome took out a majority of the 30 percent that reached populated areas. Several Hamas rockets hit homes, and school courtyards that were luckily vacated beforehand.
The IDF has responded by hitting 200 strategic targets in Gaza including an underground arms factory, cross border attack tunnel, and a Hamas’s military intelligence headquarters.
This morning Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the IDF to continue attacking Gaza.
