More than 100 rockets have been fired into Israel by Hamas terrorists in the past hour alone.  Hundreds of thousands of citizens have been ordered into shelters.

Rockets have been directed toward the cities of Ashdod, Ashkelon, Netiviot, Lechish and sirens can be heard for the first time in 18 months in Jerusalem.

16 rockets have hit open areas near Be’er Sheva.  Reports say 4 have been intercepted.

The attacks follow Israeli air raids on targets in Gaza which were reported to have destroyed underground rocket launchers and tunnels earlier today.

Story continues to develop.
