Deja vu all over again: Rocket sirens (and worse) in southern Israelonce again firing rockets at southern Israel.
Rocket sirens sounded Saturday night in Israeli towns near the border with the Gaza Strip. The IDF said it was investigating the incident.This time, let's not wait for it to get worse. It's time to mow the lawn (and more) before it grows out of control.
Late Friday night, Israeli warplanes carried out three air strikes in the northern Gaza Strip after two rockets were fired from the Strip at southern Israel.
One rocket fired at the city of Ashkelon was intercepted by an Iron Dome battery, hours after another rocket exploded in an open area in the city of Sderot.
In Sderot, a nearby bus was damaged by shrapnel, but none were wounded. Rocket alerts were sounded in both cases. The rocket appeared to have been fired from Beit Hanoun, in northern Gaza. This is the first rocket to hit Sderot since the 2014 summer Gaza war.
UPDATE 11:14 PM
Tonight's sirens are officially a false alarm.
