Israeli Defence Force Iron Dome - Gaza rockets intercepted in mid air

An Israeli woman was moderately injured by a projectile fired from Gaza into southern Israel, the army said.

The projectile landed in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that a 50-year-old woman sustained shrapnel wounds to her legs.

No Palestinian faction has claimed responsibility for the launch.

Two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip landed in southern Israel on Sunday, without causing any damage or injuries, the Israeli military said.

The rockets fell in the southern regional councils of Pitchat Shalom and Shaar HaNegev, areas both bordering the Palestinian territory.

The attack brought to 26 the number of rockets fired from Gaza into Israel since July 1, the military said.

July has seen an uptick in the number of rockets and other projectiles fired at Israel from Gaza after several months of calm following a deadly flare-up of violence in April.
