Hamas rocket fire spreads to Haifa, Ofakim, Caesarea

Dozens of rockets were fired by Hamas Monday – during the 24 hours for which the Islamists asked for a ceasefire – against a widening radius of targets, starting with Ashkelon, moving on to Kiryat Malachi, Netivot, the Eshkol District and Ashkelon. By evening, Hamas aimed at more distant targets, Haifa, Hadera, Caesarea, Binyamina, Ofakim and Mt. Carmel. Iron Dome intercepted 4 rockets. An apparent attempt to shoot a heavy Iranian Fajr-5 missile at Tel Aviv failed and caused more than 10 casualties, including women and children outside the Shifa hospital in Gaza City.
