The IDF also posted raw footage of the rockets:

According to local media reports, the bus was destroyed and one person wounded, RT said, and the bus was apparently empty at the time. The wounded person was injured by a gunshot and is in serious condition, according to reports. In August, Israel conducted a series of airstrikes against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip. After Hamas fired more than 150 rockets into southern Israel, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) retaliated by launching more than 140 airstrikes on Gaza, according to an RT News report. “IDF fighter jets targeted over 20 terror sites in military compounds and in a Hamas training camp. Among the sites targeted were a weapons manufacturing and storage facility, a complex used for the Hamas naval force and a military compound used for rocket-launching experiments,” the IDF said in a statement, which was translated by RT. Israel’s Iron Dome intercepted 25 of the 150 rockets fired by militants. Most of the missiles reportedly landed in uninhabited locations, though at least four struck the city of Sderot. The attacks come as Egypt is leading efforts in an attempt to reach a cease-fire between the two sides. The Israeli military in July had engaged in a “wide-scale attack” against Hamas at the Gaza Strip, after Israeli soldiers came under fire, the military said. The Israeli military later said that “fighter jets commenced a wide-scale attack against Hamas military targets throughout the Gaza Strip,” the Associated Press had reported. And in May, a senior official of Hamas’ political bureau claimed during a TV interview that 50 of the Gazans killed in recent clashes with Israeli troops were part of the terror group. Salar al-Bardaweel confirmed during the interview that the militant group was sending its people to die in the protests, the Times of Israel had reported.
