Palestinian terrorists with Hamas fired more than 130 rockets at Israel within the span of approximately five minutes Tuesday in an attempt to oversaturate the Iron Dome’s ability to intercept rockets and hit a school inside Israel.
Abu Obeida, the spokesman for Hamas’ military wing, said the Islamist group fired 137 rockets at Ashkelon and Ashdod over a five-minute period and warned that it has “many more.”
“Three injured Israelis were hospitalized after rockets hit a school and residential buildings in Ashkelon and Ashdod,” The Washington Post reported. “Military officials said more than 350 rockets had been launched from Gaza since the start of the flare-up, although more than a third of them failed to cross into Israel and exploded, landing inside the enclave itself.”
Initial reports suggested that the school was empty because schools within 25 miles of Gaza had been ordered to stay home because of the rapid escalation of violence.
