At least 25 rockets were fired from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip at southern Israel on Tuesday afternoon in the latest barrage by Gaza terrorist groups.
The rockets activated the red alert sirens in many communities in the south. According to the IDF, the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted four of the rockets, while 16 others landed in open areas.
The municipality of Sderot reported that two rockets struck the city and caused damage to vehicles but there were no casualties. Several minutes later, medical help was summoned after a foreign worker was seriously injured at a construction site. Two other workers were lightly injured at the site.
Minutes before the latest rocket attacks, the IDF issued instructions to residents in the area surrounding the Gaza Strip and in the city of Sderot to stay near a designated shelter. Three rockets had been fired at Israel from Gaza on Tuesday morning.
Terrorist organizations in Gaza vowed to make Israel pay following the death of hunger-striking Islamic Jihad terrorist Terrorist Khader Adnan in prison this morning.
Khader Adnan, one of the senior leaders of the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization in Shomron, was found early Tuesday morning unconscious in his cell at the Nitzan Prison. He was later pronounced dead at Assaf Harofeh Hospital following resuscitation efforts.
Arab terrorist prisoners have turned hunger striking into a pressure tactic aimed at forcing Israel to release them out of fear for their lives. Israel has several times in the past caved to the pressure and released some hunger strikers.
