Three people were lightly wounded in Israel on Tuesday by rockets fired from the Gaza Strip, according to Magen David Adom.

Air raid sirens warned of incoming rockets in Tel Aviv and its suburbs on Tuesday afternoon, with several direct hits reported throughout the White City.

A 41-year-old man sustained a shrapnel wound to his leg, the MDA subsequently announced. Medics evacuated the victim to Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center (Ichilov Hospital).

Video footage posted to social media showed two people walking down a Tel Aviv street when a large rocket fragment crashes into the sidewalk, barely missing them.

Tuesday’s barrage saw at least a dozen rockets being fired at the greater Tel Aviv area.

Earlier on Tuesday, paramedics treated two women in their 60s for shrapnel wounds after a rocket hit a residential building in Ashkelon, the MDA said. In addition, two children and one adult received treatment for anxiety and shock.

According to police, officers were “working to isolate the impact scene and searching for [rocket] remnants” to ensure the impact posed no further risk.

Palestinian terrorists have fired more than 11,500 rockets towards Israeli territory since Hamas launched a war against the Jewish state on Oct. 7, the Foreign Ministry said earlier this week.

On Monday, air-raid sirens blared across southern Israel and the greater Tel Aviv area, sending as many as four million Israelis running for shelter.

Rocket shrapnel was found in the courtyard of a school in Ganei Tikva, a suburb of Tel Aviv.

Iran’s Tasnim news agency, which is affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, cited Hamas as saying it had targeted Tel Aviv “in response to the ongoing crimes of the Zionist regime against … the Gaza Strip.”
