Hamas fired 130 rockets into Israeli territory. This was reported by the military wing of the Al-Qassam Brigades movement in Telegram.

“The Al-Qassam Brigades have now fired 130 rockets into the cities of Ashkelon, Netivot, and Sderot in response to the bombing of the al-Shuruk Tower and as an initial response to the killing of several Brigades leaders,” the group said in a statement.

According to the Times of Israel, six Israelis, including a six-year-old boy, were wounded in the city of Sderot as a result of the shelling. The child is now in serious condition. According to the newspaper, the attack targeted an apartment building.
