The Jewish Press reports: At least three rockets were launched from Gaza at 9 pm Sunday night in an attack on southern Israel, including one that landed in an open field in the Shaar HaNegev Regional Council district, igniting a fire.

The Iron Dome anti-missile defense system intercepted two of the rockets, directly over a concert about to be held in the southern Israeli city of Sderot, less than a mile from the Gaza border. Panicked concert goers searched for a bomb shelter (video in tweet below). “Three launches from the Gaza Strip were identified as aimed at Israeli territory,” the IDF said.

“Rocket just landed in a field in Sderot near a large concert that was about to begin,” wrote a reader. “My daughter was there. Smoke everywhere. Concert canceled.”
