From Ynet this morning, summarizing in the briefest of terms the events of yesterday, Tuesday, day one of Israel's military counter-offensive against the forces of Gaza:
More than 117 rockets fell in Israeli territory, 29 of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile-defense system on the first day of ‘Operation Protective Edge’. In addition, the IDF carried out 234 attacks and 23 people were killed. 
The Iron Dome anti-rocket defense system intercepted "at least 2 rockets over Be'er Sheva" around 1:00 am, according to this Ynet report.

There have already been several rounds of Tzeva Adom warnings and incoming Gazan rockets since midnight, the most recent one around twenty minutes ago (6:00 am) in the Sha'ar Hanegev region.
