Militants in Gaza have fired over 30 rockets into Israel. Three of the rockets were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome defense system. According to a March 12 report by the New York Times, Israel responded with an artillery strike.

The Israeli artillery strike was targeting “terror locations” in the Gaza Strip. The rockets fired from the Gaza Strip landed near a library in Sderot, a border town. Another struck near a gas station in the Negev Desert in Israel.

A 57 year-old woman was injured during the rocket strike. She was hurt as she sought refuge in Sderot. At the time of publication, the extent of the woman's injuries were unknown.

Gaza fired the rockets after the British Prime Minister expressed his support for Israel. David Cameron stated that he stands with Israel and will help them fight Islamic extremism and a nuclear Iran. During his speech, he mentioned his support for peace talks and urged Israel to “imagine” the benefits of peace.

Gaze fired the rockets at Israel during a rainstorm. Residents in the area had been hearing “booms” from the thunder. The sound of the rockets was easily discernible from the thunder.
