Palestinians in Gaza Launch Rocket Barrages at Israel, IDF Responds

(Jerusalem Post) Yonah Jeremy Bob - After the death of a hunger-striking member of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Palestinians in Gaza fired 104 rockets into Israel on Tuesday and Wednesday. Israel countered with 16 airstrikes, mostly on Hamas positions. A ceasefire was announced Wednesday morning. IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Daniel Hagari said Hamas had fired surface-to-air missiles at Israeli aircraft, which were not particularly effective, but had mostly left the fighting to Islamic Jihad. Of the rockets fired at Israel, 11 fell in the sea, 14 fell in Gaza, 24 were shot down by Iron Dome, and 48 fell in open areas. Three people were injured directly by rocket fire, including a foreign worker from China.
