Reading Time: < 1 minute

Dozens of rockets were fired from the blockaded Gaza Strip towards Israel on Saturday, an AFP journalist in the Palestinian territory said, as sirens warning of incoming fire blared in Israel.

The rocket fire was launched from multiple locations in Gaza starting at 06:30 am (0330 GMT), the AFP journalist reported.


The Israeli army warned of sirens across the country’s south and central areas for more than an hour, urging the public to stay near bomb shelters.

The military also said “a number of terrorists have infiltrated into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip,” without providing further information.


A 70-year-old woman was in critical condition and another person was trapped after a rocket hit a building in central Israel, the Magen David Adom emergency services said.

In a separate incident, medics said a 20-year-old man was hurt moderately from shrapnel.


The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the premier will shortly convene security chiefs over the violence.
