The extraordinary moment when a wedding reception in Israel was disrupted by incoming rocket fire was captured on video Tuesday. Guests screamed and ran for shelter during the marriage celebration in Holon as the rocket was chased by an interceptor from Israel’s Iron Dome defense system.

Explosions and crying children can be heard in the video, and guests were urged in Hebrew to take cover. Israel launched its largest offensive in the Gaza Strip in nearly two years on Tuesday, carrying out an aerial assault on scores of targets in what officials called an open-ended operation aimed at ending weeks of heavy rocket fire.
