Gaza terrorists fired three M75 missiles at the eastern Negev city of Dimona on Wednesday night, but no one was injured.
Two of the missiles landed in open areas, causing no damage. The third was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system, indicating it was headed for a populated area.
The Hamas terrorist organization claimed responsibility for the attack, stating it had attempted to strike at Israel’s nuclear reactor, which is located just outside the city.
The group also launched attacks on the coastal cities of Rehovot, Yavneh and Ness Tziona. As in Dimona, Iron Dome anti-missile batteries intercepted each missile. Residents of the areas were also warned by the Color Red incoming rocket alert system prior to the attacks, which allowed them time to race to shelters in safety.Hana Levi Julian
