Iron Drone intercepts rocket fired from Gaza. No injuries
The southern town of Sderot Sunday night was enjoying its first entertainment, a drive-in movie show, since the outbreak of the coronavirus, when a red alert signaling an incoming Palestinian rocket from the Gaza Strip and explosions sent them running for shelter. No one was hurt but many of the parked vehicles were damaged by falling shrapnel from the rocket’s interception by an Iron Dome. The attack coincided with the changing of the Gaza division’s command: Brig..Nimrod Aloni took over from Brig. Eliezer Toledano.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is believed responsible for the rocket fire in revenge for Israel’s targeted assassination its leader Al Atta last November.
