Over a dozen rockets fired from Gaza hit the Israeli city of Beersheva on Sunday after one man was killed in overnight rocket fire.

Israel responded with air strikes, wounding at least nine Palestinians.

Sunday is the fourth consecutive day of cross-border exchanges that have left at least 30 people dead.

Al Jazeera's Cal Perry reports from Beersheva.
