OREANDA-NEWS. Sixty rockets were fired into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip overnight. This was reported by the press service of the Israeli army.

The message of the military says: "As of 7:00 from 19:00 yesterday evening, about 60 missile launches were recorded from the territory of the Gaza Strip on Israeli territory. About 10 missiles fell on the territory of the sector."

It is noted that dozens of missiles were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

The previous evening, the army reported that since the beginning of the escalation on Monday evening, 3,100 rockets have been launched into Israel from the Palestinian enclave.

In turn, the press service of the IDF reported that the Israeli army launched a third series of attacks on the tunnel system of the Hamas "Metro" movement ruling in the Gaza Strip, hitting 15 kilometers of underground structures in the north of the enclave. It is specified that during the strike, 54 Israeli Air Force fighters hit about 35 targets and 15 kilometers of the tunnel system.

A spokesman for the ICRC office in Gaza, Suheir Zakut, told RIA Novosti that it is difficult for medical workers in the Gaza Strip to help the wounded due to the heavy burden on the health system. She said: "The health system in Gaza was overwhelmed and pushed to the limit even before this escalation due to the coronavirus. Just this morning, the Ministry of Health announced new deaths and a thousand new cases of coronavirus. It is difficult for paramedics to prioritize the injured. There is not enough medicine. "
