Iron Dome fails to intercept Gaza rocket: Israeli media
Israeli media reports that sirens blared in the Israeli settlement of Sderot, noting that the Iron Dome did not work.
The Iron Dome did not work, Israeli media said following reports that sirens blared in the Israeli settlement of Sderot.
Rockets struck Sderot without being intercepted, Israeli media added, noting that the projectiles were launched from Gaza, as "Israel's pride" failed to detect them.
A fire broke out in a building in the Israeli settlement, caused by sharpnel from one of the rockets, sources said.
"Incoming rocket sirens also sounded in the adjacent towns of Ibim and Nir Am" near the borders with the Gaza Strip, Israeli media added, while sources reported hearing the sounds of three explosions in areas near Gaza.
Israeli media had addressed on Wednesday warnings from the Israeli security apparatuses about the possibility of Gaza, and even possibly the occupied Palestinian interior, becoming an effective part in deterring aggressions in occupied Al-Quds.
What happened in occupied Palestine in the past few days, KAN military affairs analyst Roi Sharon saw, was a lesson to "Israel" that Seif Al-Quds was a failure for "Tel Aviv", "because the link between East Al-Quds and Gaza, one must admit, was established a year ago through [Seif Al-Quds Battle]."
Hundreds of settlers were trying to storm Bab Al-Amoud in occupied Al-Quds, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported Wednesday, noting that the Israeli occupation forces were trying to prevent Israeli settlers from progressing toward Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Palestinians had gathered in Bab Al-Amoud to confront the settlers' attempts at storming the area, and the IOF tried to force the young Palestinians gathering there into backing down and withdrawing from the area.
Our correspondent also noted that Israeli media was broadcasting and publishing alerts that a flag march would be harmful to all parties.
"Today's march, as per the organizers, is a response to the Palestinians' resistance to the Israeli attempts to storm Al-Aqsa," Al Mayadeen's correspondent added.
The occupation warplanes had launched Tuesday air raids on sites west of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, allegedly in response to a missile fired earlier at one of the settlements of the Gaza envelope.
