Rockets fly over Gaza skies as Israel and Palestine launch airstrikes

Video on social media showed the skies above southern and central Israel lighting up with rockets and interceptors from Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system.

Rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip by Palestinian militants late on Friday hours after Israel unleashed a wave of airstrikes, killing at least 10 people, including a senior militant, and wounding dozens.

Israel said it was targeting the Islamic Jihad militant group in response to an "imminent threat" following the arrest of another senior militant in the occupied West Bank earlier this week.
