(AP) The Israeli military says its Iron Dome rocket-defense system has shot down an incoming projectile bound for Tel Aviv.


Footage from Associated Press Television News shows a plume of smoke emanating from an Iron Dome battery deployed in Tel Aviv followed by a flash of light overhead as the rocket is intercepted.


People huddled along Tel Aviv's beachfront boardwalk cheered Saturday as the interception took place.


It's the third straight day that Gaza militants have fired rockets at Tel Aviv, Israel's bustling commercial and cultural capital.


Israel says its Iron Dome system has intercepted nearly 250 rockets since a round of fighting broke out on Wednesday.
