Israeli army: Gaza rockets intercepted by Iron Dome

June 15, 2014 10:36 P.M. (Updated: June 17, 2014 12:09 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Rockets fired from the Gaza Strip late Sunday were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome system, the Israeli army said.

"A salvo of rockets was launched at southern Israel by Gaza terrorists, two of which were successfully intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system," the army said in a statement.

The military "is searching the area for additional projectiles," the statement said, without providing further details.

The Israeli news site Ynet reported that four rockets were launched towards Ashkelon from Gaza, and that the two that were not intercepted by the Iron Dome landed in open areas without causing injuries or damages.
