Rocket fire sends wedding guests running for shelter

HOLON, Israel (NBC/APTN/ARAKELIANTS VARTAN) — Rocket fire sent guests at a wedding in Central Israel running for shelter.

Amateur video captured the scene Tuesday night.

Sirens sounded as the Israeli couple celebrated their wedding.

Israel’s Iron Dome Defense System then intercepted two rockets.

One was seen flying directly over the wedding.

Israel launched an offensive in the Gaza Strip Tuesday.

The military carried out aerial assaults on dozens of targets during what officials called an open-ended operation aimed at ending weeks of rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.
