Video: Iron Dome Intercepts 2 Missiles Over Jerusalem Hills

A Code Red siren sent residents in the western suburbs of Jerusalem scrambling for the bomb shelters Sunday night.

Residents in the communities of Aminadav, Kiryat Yearim, Telz, Abu Ghosh, Tzur Hadassah and surrounds all heard the siren wailing through the Jerusalem Hills — and the loud ‘boom!’ that followed.

The Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted at least two missiles over the western Jerusalem hills. An alert photographer with the 0404 website caught the interception on video (even though he probably should have been in a shelter himself!)

Although such missile attacks are still being aimed at the capital and at central Israel in general, they are not being launched as often, or in barrages nearly as intense as they were several weeks ago. IDF officials and other military analysts speculate that Hamas may be draining its arsenal of long-range ordnance.

A short while after Sunday night’s attack, the IDF targeted the rocket launcher that fired at Jerusalem. “A hit was confirmed,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.

From midnight to 11 pm Sunday night, more than 130 rockets and missiles were fired at Israel, according to the IDF. This makes a total of 726 rockets and missiles launched at Israel since Hamas ended the cease-fire with its violation eight hours before reaching the deadline for the temporary truce to end.

Our thanks to photographer Aharon Yerushalayim and the 0404 website for the great footage, and to the Iron Dome crew for the great aim!
