Barrage of Rockets Fired From Gaza Into Southern Israel

A barrage of rockets fired from Gaza towards the Israeli city of Ashkelon was captured on video on May 15.

This footage, taken shortly after 3 am, shows several missiles rising from the ground before some exploded midair. It wasn’t clear if they were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome missile-defense system. The Israel Defense Force reported that “barrages of rockets” were fired from Gaza, with one reportedly hitting the nearby city of Ashdod.

As of Friday morning, the ministry of health in Gaza reported at least 119 deaths since the start of Israeli bombardment, and said that at least 830 people had been injured. In Israel, at least eight deaths have been reported due to rocket attacks by groups in Gaza. Credit: @mypcashqelon via Storyful
