BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of rockets fired from the Gaza Strip struck southern Israel late Monday, Israel's army said, while residents of the occupied West Bank said three landed near Bethlehem.

There were no immediate reports of injury or damage.

An army spokesman said "several barrages" of rockets from Gaza hit southern Israel. He said the exact number was still being compiled.

The spokesman said the army was looking into reports that three rockets landed in the Bethlehem-area illegal settlement of Gush Etzion.

Meanwhile a Code Red siren was heard in the Hof Ashkelon regional council.

Nine Palestinians, six of them members of Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades, were killed in Israeli strikes overnight.

An Israeli army statement said that "aircraft targeted three concealed rockets launchers in the northern Gaza Strip."

Earlier Monday, Israeli warplanes struck the northern Gaza Strip, injuring a young boy, medics said.

Airstrikes hit agricultural areas in northern Jabaliya, with medical sources saying a four-year-old boy sustained moderate injuries.

Another two airstrikes hit agricultural land in eastern Jabaliya, causing damages to property.

Two airstrikes also hit nearby Beit Lahiya, with no injuries reported.

Additionally, an airstrike hit the al-Shujayyia neighborhood of Gaza City, with no injuries reported.

Israel asked for it. Their crackdown in the West Bank was totally unacceptable with no proof that Hamas or any other militants were involved in the Kidnapping and murder of 3 settlers.

They are not homemade rockets that landed near Bethlehem. They are long range rockets. Bethlehem is over 50 miles away from Gaza. They getting sophisticated now. More power to them.

It would seem that Abbas' unity partner wants Gaza War III with Israel. Maybe Haniyeh has forgotten the effects of Cast Lead and Operation Pillars of Defense.

any rocket seeking landing in area A should not be targeted by iron dome. instead an escort of two rockets should assist it

Like every region ruled by a military regime (Egypt, Syria, etc.), it does Not matter to Hamas at all, what the people of Gaza may want, and: -1- Israel WILL have to give HAMAS THE WAR that it wants, but -2- Hamas will NOT give to ISRAEL THE PEACE that it wants !!

High rates of Gaza rocket fire is how the last Gaza war started, and The United States on Monday night condemned the Hamas rocket fire on southern Israel, and said it supported Israel's right to defend itself !!
