South and central Israel came under a heavy barrage of rockets fired from the Gaza Strip late Thursday night. Hamas claimed to have launched over 100 rockets into the South, at Ashdod and Ashkelon. One rocket landed in Ramle and set a field on fire. Islamic Jihad threatened late Thursday that it as prepared to launch additional salvos against Israel. The fresh barrage came as the IDF prepares for a possible ground offensive in Gaza and upped its airstrikes against Hamas and other terror groups in the Gaza Strip. On Thursday, the military called up 7,000 reservists as rocket barrages continue to pound the country. On Thursday evening, Defense Minister Benny Gantz authorized the IDF to call up an additional 9,000 reservists as needed in accordance with operational needs.
