Rockets come following one-year anniversary of IDF assassination of senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Bahaa Abu al-Ata.

The IDF attacked targets in the Gaza Strip overnight Saturday in response to rockets fired earlier into Israel, targeting underground Hamas infrastructure and military positions.
The Hamas rockets were fired from Gaza into southern and central Israel during the pre-dawn hours of Sunday morning. Sirens were heard in Ashdod and Kibbutz Palmachim. 

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit confirmed the incident in a statement, and said the details were currently being investigated. They tweeted that two launches from the Gaza Strip have been identified.


While the sirens were only heard in Ashdod and Palmachim, interceptions were seen in cities in the center, with video footage showing rockets intercepted over the Yad Eliyahu neighborhood in Tel Aviv. 
Other video footage showed interceptions above the city of Holon in central Israel, as well.

More video footage was shared on social media by Channel 10 military correspondent Or Heller. According to Heller, the rockets were fired from the northern end of the Gaza Strip.
The rockets come in the wake of the one-year anniversary of the IDF's assassination of senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader  Bahaa Abu al-Ata. Cautious of potential attacks from Gaza on the anniversary, additional Iron Dome batteries were deployed in southern Israel, with the IDF and Israel Air Force both on high alert.
Hundreds of rockets were fired toward southern and central Israel within a matter of days after Ata was assassinated by the IDF in November 2019
