No casualties as sirens sound in Rehovot, Ashkelon, Ashdod; home suffers direct hit after family flees to shelter; Palestinians say 1 killed; IDF strikes multiple Gaza targets

Over 100 rockets were launched into Israel from the Gaza Strip Saturday morning and Israel responded with strikes as a fragile ceasefire along the border again faltered.

Starting at 10 a.m. and into the early afternoon warning sirens were heard in Rehovot, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Sderot and multiple other communities in the Gaza periphery. The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted dozens of projectiles.

A home in a community in the Eshkol Regional Council suffered a direct hit, without casualties, as the residents had run to a nearby shelter moments earlier once sirens were heard. Police were at the scene.
