A week after the shelling began, militants have fired some 3,150 rockets from the Gaza Strip toward Israel, the Israeli army said Monday morning.
The army said about 460 of the rockets never made it across the border and went down in Gaza territory.

The Iron Dome missile defence system had an interception rate of about 90 per cent, it said.
By comparison, a total of 4,481 rockets were fired at Israel during the entire 51-day Gaza war in 2014.
There were initially no current figures on the number of attacks by Israel in the Gaza Strip this morning, said the military.
Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip began firing rockets at Israel a week ago, precisely Monday evening.
Israel’s army responded with a massive assault on Hamas targets in the coastal area. (dpa/NAN)
