“It was scary. There were several loud shots, or explosions, over our heads,” said Haim Roy Ben Shlomo, 38, a resident of Ramat Gan, Tel Aviv.

On Tuesday (11/5) local time, the Israeli military again claimed that 90 percent of the rockets that reached Israeli airspace were destroyed by the Iron Dome. The Israeli military official said about 500 missiles had been fired from Gaza since the start of the conflict.

Although the majority were successfully repelled, 10 percent of the rockets fired by Hamas managed to penetrate the Iron Dome. A pipe belonging to an Israeli energy company was also hit by the Hamas air attack as Iron Dome failed to intercept it.

Video broadcast by Channel 12 shows flames rising from what looks like a large fuel barrel near the city of Ashkelon in Israel’s Mediterranean, south of Tel Aviv.

In addition, Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said that an empty bus in Holon, south of Tel Aviv, was also hit by a Hamas air strike. A rocket also crashed at Rishon Letzion in central Israel.

Two Israeli women were reported killed by the rockets fired from Gaza. The local Barzilai medical center said it was treating 70 wounded people.

As is known, this Hamas air attack was triggered by Israeli violence at the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex, East Jerusalem. Hamas gave Israel an ultimatum to withdraw from the compound which was then responded to by Israeli rocket attacks.

The air raids then heated up. As a result, 35 Palestinians, 10 of them children, were reported killed.
