Schools in S. Israel will not open Sunday after Palestinian 230-rocket blitz

As Palestinian rockets continued to fall over southern Israel from Saturday morning well into the night, a decision was taken not to open the region’s schools Sunday morning, including those in the important towns of Beersheba, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ofakim, Kiryat Gat and locales along the Gaza border. The IDF reported that Iron Dome had intercepted 55 of the 230 incoming rockets, focusing on the ones that would have hit populated areas, and rated its performance a 90pc success. Like the rockets, the IDF operations over Gaza were still ongoing Saturday night after striking 70 terrorist targets. Five Palestinians were reported killed.
