The Iron Dome anti-missile system was hard at work midday Thursday, intercepting missiles fired almost without stop by terrorists in Gaza.

Since midnight, at least 16 missiles have been shot down by the Iron Dome.

Shortly after 2 pm, a barrage of Grad Katyusha missiles were fired at the Negev city of Be’er Sheva. At least three of the missiles headed straight for the city, in two separate attacks. All three were intercepted by the Iron Dome.

A barrage of at least 20 rockets and missiles was fired at southern and central Israel around midday Thursday. The Hamas terrorist organization took responsibility for the attack.

Most of the missiles targeted the coastal cities of Israel, exploding over the port cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon.

The Iron Dome system intercepted three missiles above Ashdod, two more above Ashkelon and another two above the Gush Dan region — all headed directly for high population areas.
