Air-raid warning sirens continue to sound throughout the south of the country, warning residents of the continuation of Palestinian shelling, according to a report by Sputnik correspondent from Israel.
Later, Israel’s Ambulance Service said on Tuesday that at least 34 Israelis were hospitalized with injures and in stressful condition following the Palestinian militant shelling of the Israeli southern territories.
“From 16:30 to 23:30 [14:30 – 21:30 GMT] our brigades have provided assistance to 34 victims in Shaar Ha-Negev, Ashkelon and Sderot,” the service said.
In response to the Palestinian shelling, the Israeli military attacked over 70 militant targets in the Gaza Strip from the ground and the air. According to local doctors, three Gaza Strip residents died in Israeli strikes. One of the Israeli airstrikes specifically targeted the Hamas-run Al-Aqsa TV station.
