IDF strikes Hamas posts in Gaza as dozens of rockets fired at southern Israel early Wednesday evening

Israel’s air force bombed a number of Hamas positions across the Gaza Strip Wednesday night, as dozens of rockets and mortar shells were fired at Israeli communities near the Palestinian enclave hours, including a barrage that slammed into the city of Sderot, injuring several Israelis.

Throughout the night, several waves of alarms sounded in the Hof Ashkelon, Sha’ar Hanegev and Eshkol regions, outside Gaza, sending thousands of Israelis into bomb shelters. According to the Israel Defense Forces, 36 projectiles were fired at southern Israel on Wednesday night, including the eight that were launched at Sderot.

Four of the 36 were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, the army said. “The majority of the rockets hit open areas,” the IDF said in a statement. Spokespeople for the Eshkol and Sha’ar Hanegev regions said no rockets or mortar shells appeared to have struck inside any of their communities.

The Israel Defense Forces said it was conducting airstrikes on “terror targets” across the Gaza Strip in response to the rocket attacks.

Palestinian media reported the Israeli Air Force was targeting Hamas positions throughout the coastal enclave. The IDF would not immediately comment on the locations of its strikes. Residents of southern Israel were told to remain close to bomb shelters in case of additional rockets or mortar shells from Gaza.

According to the IDF, eight rockets were fired at Sderot at about 7:40 p.m., with two of them being intercepted by the Iron Dome. Two men were injured from shrapnel, a woman was hurt as she ran to a bomb shelter, and 10 more suffered panic attacks, including two pregnant women who were hospitalized after they went into early labor.
