19-Aug-11 Overnight rocket barrage on southern Israel

The south of Israel was hit by a barrage of rockets Thursday night (says Ynet). Rockets were fired at Beer Sheba, and into the Sdot Negev and Shaar Hanegev regions (exact details are avoided for security reasons). A rocket landed in an open area near Beer Sheba after the air raid siren sounded throughout the city. The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted two rockets out of 4 fired at the city of Ashkelon; the other two exploded in open spaces. Overall there are so far no reports of injuries or damage. More details to come.
