Israel missile interceptor goes to work

Video footage shows the reaction in Israel to the latest rocket attacks by Palestinian militant group Hamas.

One woman is visibly upset as an Israeli anti-missile system is activated, suggesting further rockets have been launched from Gaza.

Three people were killed when this four storey residential building was hit in a town 25 kilometres north of Gaza.

They were the first Israeli casualties of the latest conflict.

Witnesses say Hamas fired several rockets over the border overnight.

Israel’s Iron Dome interceptor has shot down more than 30 missiles and the Israeli military says it has destroyed much of Gaza’s long-range rocket stockpile during its own strikes.
