Iron Dome over Ashkelon March 25, 2018

Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization resumed its rocket attacks on southern Israel, with multiple barrages fired at Gaza Belt communities across the border beginning at around 2:15 am Wednesday morning.

The Iron Dome anti-missile defense system intercepted at least three rockets between the hours of 2:15 am and 4:00 am, two of them over the city of Sderot.

More than 10 rockets were fired at Israel within that time, all of them aimed at civilian communities in the Eshkol, Sha’ar HaNegev, Sdot Negev and Ashkelon Coastal Regional Council districts. Most of them landed in open areas, according to the IDF. No physical injuries were reported.

At least one and possibly more of the rockets fired by Hamas failed to clear the border and landed within Gaza territory, according to the IDF.

The uptick in aggression from Hamas came on the second night of Britain’s Prince William’s three-day visit to Israel.
