Al-Qassam Brigades: Another two rockets hit Dimona

The Izz Ad-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas, this morning announced that they had struck the southern Israeli city of Dimona with two M75 rockets.

The group said in a press statement that: "The mujahedeen were able to attack Dimona with two homemade M75 missiles."

Yesterday the Brigades announced that five M75 missiles had struck Dimona, the third-largest city in the Negev, since the beginning of the Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip on July 7.

Israel waged airstrikes across the Gaza Strip since July 7 in an operation it calls "Protective Edge".

A spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his government ordered a ground offensive last night to hit the tunnels "terrorists" use to get into Israel.

The Israeli army is waging, since Thursday, a series of air strikes, artillery and other naval, intensive on different areas in the Gaza Strip, is the most violent since the start of the military operation on the Gaza Strip, on July 7 this year.

Since the start of the operation more than 260 Palestinians have been killed, while 1,980 have been injured. Eight bodies were retrieved this morning, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
