Hamas launches blanket rocket assault on central Israel

No casualties or damage immediately reported from Hamas’ blanket blitz across central Israel Saturday night after the Islamists gave Israel one hour’s notice in a Hebrew message that a major rocket blitz awaited Tel Aviv and its environs. Iron Dome batteries intercepted many of the 10 rockets in mid-air. Others landed in open spaces. Sirens were heard in different parts of Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Ramat Hashorn, Petach Tikva, Bnei Brak, Ramat Gan, Rishon Lezion, Ashdod, Or Yehuda, Beit Shemesh and Modiin-Maccabim. A second round was directed at southern Israeli targets.
