Islamic Jihad expands rocket range, firing at Jerusalem and Beersheba
On 3rd day of Gaza-Israel conflict, terror group launches large barrages at south and central Israel; military says nearly 1,000 rockets launched at country so far

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terror group on Sunday widened the range of its rocket attacks on Israel, launching several long-range rockets toward towns on the outskirts of Jerusalem, as well as the southern city of Beersheba.

As rocket attacks and Israeli strikes on the PIJ in Gaza continued, reports proliferated in the afternoon that a ceasefire was in the cards. AFP, citing an Egyptian source, said Israel had agreed to a truce. An Israeli source, however, told the Ynet news site that talks were still ongoing.

At around 8 a.m., rocket sirens sounded in several communities near Jerusalem for the first time since the Israel Defense Forces launched Operation Breaking Dawn against the terror group on Friday afternoon. Several rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system near the capital, and there were no reported injuries in the attack.
