A barrage of rockets was fired towards the city of Be’er Sheva and nearby areas just after 12:30 a.m. on Friday night.
Nine of the rockets exploded in open areas, and another rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome system.
Hamas claimed responsibility for the firing on Be’er Sheva and said that it was carried out in response to the deaths of Palestinian Arabs in clashes in Judea and Samaria and to Israeli attacks in the northern Gaza Strip.
