More than half a million Israelis had less than 60 seconds to find shelter after hearing a rocket siren. Tens of thousands had only 15 seconds.

2,303 rockets hit Israel.
115 rockets hit populated areas in Israel.

IDF forces neutralized 32 terror tunnels.
14 of these tunnels crossed into Israel.

At least 147 Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists.
At least 65 terrorists of various smaller organizations.
At least 603 terrorists of unknown affiliation.
In addition, 159 terrorist suspects have been questioned by Israeli security forces.
