Hamas targeted Israel’s second largest power plant, the Rutenberg power station, in Ashkelon.

About the Rutenberg Power Plant: The power station has a total installed capacity of 2,250 MW. It is arranged in two blocks, Blocks A and B, each containing two power generating units (2 x 575 MW and 2 x 550 MW). Construction began in the early 1980s, after completion of the first phase of the Orot Rabin power station near Hadera. Phase A became operational in 1990-1991, and Phase B in 2000-2001. Coal was supplied by train from the Port of Ashdod until an on-site deepwater coal pier was completed in 2000.

In May 2021 Palestinian terrorists launched missiles at Israel’s Dimona nuclear plant a week after an Iranian propaganda video included a missile strike on the plant.
