TEL AVIV (AFP) - Two Gaza rockets were shot down over the greater Tel Aviv area by the Iron Dome anti-missile system on Sunday, the army said, after at least three explosions shook the area.

"Iron Dome intercepted two rockets over the Tel Aviv metropolitan area," the army said, several hours after another two rockets were intercepted over Lod, very close to Israel's main international airport.
