It said a third had fallen inside Gaza, and the Israeli defence system Iron Dome has intercepted most of the rest.
Ealier in the day the US president, Joe Biden, said there had “not been a significant overreaction” by Israel to the Hamas rocket attacks. “The question is how, how we get to a point, they get to a point, where there is a significant reduction in the attacks, particularly the rocket attacks that are indiscriminately fired into population centres,” he told reporters at the White House.
Abu-Ubaida, a spokesperson for Hamas’s military wing, the Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades, claimed that an Ayyash rocket with a range of 250km had been launched towards Ramon airport. The local council said a rocket had landed in the area.The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, and the UN secretary general, António Guterres, called jointly for an end to the fighting. headtopics.com

Hamas sends rockets deeper into Israel after Gaza airstrikes as conflict spiralsSirens sound in Jezreel Valley as death toll rises and Israel vows to continue military operations in Gaza until there is ‘complete quiet’ Palestinian rockets are just meant to stun not kill. These peace loving rockets is their earnest plea to stop the war. The deaths shown in Israel are due to Covid and smoke is due to mass barbecue cooking 'Rockets deeper into israel' seems to suggest that Hamas is much stronger than isreal. That Israelis vow to continue operation until 'complete quiet' seems to be impractical because the root causes of clashes do still exist. So unrests are to be expected.
