Sirens in JerusalemIron Dome shot down two missiles.
The sirens alerting Israelis to incoming rockets sounded Thursday afternoon in Jerusalem, Beyt Shemesh, Maaleh Adumim, Binyamin and Samaria regions.
Initial reports say Iron Dome rockets intercepted two missiles over Jerusalem.
Additional details are not yet available.This is the first time that we've had an alarm since Tuesday night.
They've had a busier day in the center of the country.
Hamas terrorists on Thursday afternoon launched yet another heavy barrage of rockets at Israeli cities in the center of the country. Sirens were heard in Ramle, Lod, Nes Tziyona, Yavne, and other areas south of Rishon Lezion. Several of the missiles were destroyed in mid-air by the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system, while others fell in open areas. No injuries or damage were reported.
The rockets at the central plain cities were a continuation of the heavy barrage that Israel faced on Thursday, the third day of Operation Protective Edge. Six missiles were fired at Tel Aviv Thursday, with a barrage of four missiles fired at about 8 AM, as tens of thousands of commuters were driving into the Tel Aviv area. Two more missiles were fired at about 11:30 AM. All six were shot down by Iron Dome missiles. No damage to any buildings was reported, although several cars were said to have been struck by shrapnel. One woman was treated for shock in Ramat Gan, Magen David Adom officials said.
On both occasions, warning sirens were heard in Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan, Bnei Brak, Holon, and Bat Yam. Hamas took responsibility for at least four of the rockets, with Islamic Jihad terrorists firing the other two.This cannot continue. While thank God there have been few injuries and little property damage, the country's economy cannot continue like this.
I have just been told that Kol B'rama radio is reporting that one of the rockets may have fallen in the Shuafat 'refugee camp.' BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
UPDATE 8:50 PM
Where they hit... from the same link....
Iron Dome rockets intercepted two missiles over Jerusalem, out of a total of four that were fired at it. No one was directly hurt, but a 74-year-old man in Kfar Adumim suffered a serious head injury as he ran to the bomb shelter. He was taken to Hadassah Hospital where he is under anesthesia, and being artificially respirated.
"Four rockets were fired at Jerusalem, of which two landed in open areas and two were intercepted," an army spokesman told AFP, without giving further details.
Witnesses and Palestinian security sources told AFP one rocket struck near Maaleh Adumim, while a second hit close to an Israeli military prison near Ramallah.
Three loud blasts could be heard around the city shortly after sirens wailed, sending people scrambling for shelter, AFP correspondents said.
