Thousands of residents of southern Israeli communities, including the city of Sderot – located one kilometer from the Gaza Strip – ran for cover Monday at approximately 8 p.m. as machine-gun fire triggered the red alert sirens.

“Moments ago, following reports of sirens sounding in the city of Sderot and the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, heavy machine gunfire was identified emanating from the Gaza Strip towards Israel,” an IDF spokesman tweeted.

The bullets hit buildings and cars, causing damage. No one was hurt.

Earlier in the day, IDF soldiers clashed with Hamas at the Israel-Gaza border.

Specialized, state-of-the-art, compact, all-terrain ATVs that maneuver in tight spaces are Israel’s “secret weapon,” designed to pursue and capture terrorists BEFORE they attack. Life-saving ATVs are desperately needed to protect communities throughout Israel. Please donate generously!
