A 30-rocket volley fired from Gaza. Hamas hits new areas

Hamas broadened its massive rocket blitz Monday to areas to areas hitherto untouched, after warning that its response to the deaths of seven operatives in Israeli air strikes would be “unprecedented.” Iron Dome intercepted 10 of the rockets aimed at urban areas – this time against Lachish, Gan Yavneh, Kiryat Malachi, Beer Tuvia, Gedera and Ashdod. The last rocket was aimed at Rehovot  One person was injured in Ashdod from shrapnel. The homeland command has ordered towns and villages up to 40-km from Gaza to open public shelters, including Beersheba and Ashkelon. Closer to the border, dozens of events have been cancelled and summer camps shut down for the emergency.
