GAZA CITY, Palestine
Declaring a “state of readiness” for war, the Israeli army launched counterattacks and air strikes on targets in Gaza after the Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip fired an intense barrage of rockets early Saturday toward Israel, reports Israel media.
The rocket salvoes were fired from different locations in the enclave but Israel’s Iron Dome defense system intercepted many, according to an Anadolu correspondent.
At least 40 people were killed and 800 others injured in the Gaza rockets attack, the Israeli Broadcasting Authority reported.
