Iron Dome intercepts 60 of the 160 rockets from Gaza

By 4 p.m. on Tuesday, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad had fired some 160 rockets into Israel, with 60 downed by Iron Dome before they hit populated areas of Israel. Three nonetheless struck buildings causing damage but no casualties.  Some 30 persons received medical treatment for shock or minor injuries. The Israeli Air Force struck Islamic Jihad targets in southern Gaza. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu gave opposition leader Benny Gantz a security briefing on the situation, and will soon update a second Kahol Lavan leader, Gaby Ashkenazi, who chairs the Knesset foreign affairs and security committee. Israel’s air defense systems from north to south are on high alert as Jihad rocket fire continues along with threats of more and escalated retaliation for the death of its leader Baha Abu Al-Atta in Gaza early Tuesday.

    A – sound advice but target is not worth the cost of sophisticated ordinance ; Cheaper to liquidate Suleimani and the snake heads who work for him

    60 out of 160 is a lot better than nothing. It would have been so much better if all this could have been avoided. 💋A working extraction system between Israel and Gaza could have made a big difference. But that would mean that it also has to work the other way and i just cant see Israel handing over soldiers who commit war crimes.

      I dont think it means they targeted all 160 and only hit 60. As I understand it, the Iron Dome will not target non threatening rockets, like ones that will land in an empty field.

    Israel should reply by firing 160+ rockets INTO Gaza.

    Only 37% were eliminated by iron dome?, Some simple algebra….37% of (160+200) 360 =133. ,…360-133=227……rockets struck homes,…. MYOPIC go back to school and start afresh, looks like your maths teacher was a drunkard
