More than two-dozen mortar shells were fired in three waves from Gaza at Israeli civilians on Tuesday morning, the largest attack on Jewish communities since the 2014 “Operation Protective Edge.”

The first and largest attack occurred at 7 a.m., with 25 rockets launched as parents in the Sha’ar HaNegev and Eshkol regions just outside Gaza were preparing to send their children to school. Iron Dome missile-defense systems succeeded in intercepting the majority of the mortars, but one rocket struck a tree just outside a kindergarten. After consultation with security officials, the school opened on schedule.
