The Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted two Grad Katyusha missiles Tuesday afternoon over the Negev city of Be’er Sheva.
Residents in the area were warned at 14:33 they had about 60 seconds to race for shelter; shortly after, they heard a large “boom!” as two missiles were blown to bits in the air.
Falling shrapnel did not hurt anyone as the entire population had obeyed the instructions of Home Front Command and entered their safe spaces immediately when they heard the Color Red incoming rocket alert siren.
