Israel hit with ‘huge rocket barrage’ as warning sirens blare across country

Israel continues to face attacks from Gaza, including the southern Israeli city of Ashdod being struck Monday with a “huge rocket barrage,” according to Fox News Foreign Correspondent Trey Yingst.

“We saw multiple impacts across this heavily populated area,” Yingst said, while reporting from the scene. “We took cover next to a building, but you could see the rockets coming off the Gaza Strip and slamming into buildings in this community.”

The Israel Defense Forces also said in a tweet that “Sirens [are] sounding in Jerusalem and across Israel.”

Images emerging out of Ashdod showed several cars completely destroyed and debris covering roads. Rockets also appear to have struck the city of Ashkelon.
