Israel Defense Forces spokesperson Daniel Hagari said Iran had launched dozens of surface-to-surface missiles from its territory toward Israel, APA reports citing CNN.

The vast majority of the missiles were intercepted outside Israeli territory, by Israel’s aerial defense systems, Hagari said in an update early Sunday local time.

He said a few projectiles landed within Israeli territory, and there had been a hit on an IDF base in southern Israel, which resulted in mild damage to infrastructure.

The Israeli air force had intercepted more than 10 cruise missiles outside Israeli territory, and dozens of UAVs were intercepted outside Israeli territory.

"Our planes are still in the air intercepting targets and we are ready for any threat that will come to Israel," Hagari said. "We will do everything we need, everything to defend the state of Israel."
