IDF: One rocket fired from Gaza into Israel intercepted by Iron Dome

The attack follows two Palestinian terrorist shootings over Shabbat, one of which killed seven people at a synagogue in Jerusalem.

Palestinian terrorists fired one rocket from the Gaza Strip at Israel on Wednesday evening, the Israel Defense Forces confirmed.

The projectile was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system.

Sirens sounded in the city of Sderot and in Kibbutz Nir Am and the village of Ibim nearby.

The Magen David Adom emergency service treated a woman in her 50s who fell while running to a bomb shelter in Sderot.

Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir said that he had requested an urgent Cabinet meeting in order to examine new ways of responding to rocket fire from Gaza.

The attack comes after a barrage of rockets were launched from the Palestinian enclave at Israeli communities last week, prompting retaliatory strikes by the IDF against Hamas military assets.

That exchange came after nine Palestinians were killed during clashes between Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Israeli troops in Jenin in northern Samaria last Thursday morning.

The latest attack risks further heightening tensions following two Palestinian terrorist shootings over Shabbat, one of which killed seven people at a synagogue in Jerusalem.
