Israeli interceptors deployed against machine gun fire,…

JERUSALEM, March 25 (Reuters) – Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile shield was fired on Sunday against machine gun fire originating in the Hamas-dominated Gaza Strip, and not against incoming militant rockets, the Israeli army said on Sunday.

About 10 Iron Dome rockets could be seen rising into the night sky, but there was no indication that Islamist militants in the Gaza Strip had fired rockets, a military spokeswoman said. She said the firing detected was from machine guns.

Earlier, Israeli media had reported that Iron Dome had intercepted a number of rockets fired from the Gaza Strip.
