As Jews mourned the destruction of the Temples on Tisha B’Av on Sunday morning, sirens sounded around Jerusalem warning of incoming rockets from Gaza and initial reports claim Iron Dome interceptions in the area.

At the same time, another barrage of rockets was fired at communities close to the Gaza border.
There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries in either location.
Police in Jerusalem are on high alert, particularly in the Old City and near the Temple Mount as Jews crowd the city for prayers.
