Ashdod | Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and several other politicians were rushed off the rally after the rocket sirens were heard in Ashdod and Ashkelon on Tuesday night.

The siren went off just as Netanyahu began his speech in Ashdod. A live video stream from the event showed him saying “OK, clear out,” as his bodyguards urged him to move, just before the video cut off. Some 20 minutes later, the prime minister resumed his speech.

Two rockets fired from Gaza were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system Tuesday night.


In response, Israeli aircraft struck some 15 Hamas ‘terror targets’ in the northern and central Gaza Strip, including military infrastructures meant to manufacture weapons, several locations in the organization’s naval compound and a terror tunnel, the Israel Defense Forces said overnight Tuesday.
