About a dozen rockets were fired from Gaza at southern Israel.

Most of the rockets fell in unpopulated areas on Wednesday; the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted two. Rockets intercepted by Iron Dome are headed for populated areas.

Some Israeli media put the number of rockets fired at 20.

Israel responded to some of the attacks earlier in the evening by bombing a rocket launcher in the southern Gaza Strip used to fire four mortars at Israel.
