Palestinians expand rocket radius to Beersheba
Two Grad missiles were fired Saturday evening at Beersheba, 40 kilometers from the Gaza Strip in a widening radius of Palestinian fire. One was intercepted by an Iron Dome battery. Earlier, a pair of Grads was directed at Ofakim, 27 km from the Gaza Strip. Here too Iron Dome knocked one down.
