Rockets Fired from Gaza Towards Tel Aviv

The Israeli army has said at least two rockets were fired towards Israel, triggering rocket sirens in the Tel Aviv area on Thursday.

The Israeli military said its Iron Dome missile defence system intercepted one of the rockets, while another landed in an open area, Israeli daily Haaretz reported.

Israeli television reported explosions and sirens being heard. An Israeli military spokesman said the incident was under investigation.

Israel’s Channel 10 news, citing anonymous military officials, said the rockets were Iranian-made Fajr rockets, and that there were no reports of injuries.

In Gaza, there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Al Jazeera’s Harry Fawcett, reporting from West Jerusalem, said the Israeli army confirmed it detected two rockets from Gaza.

“The leadership of Hamas has gone underground, expecting an Israeli retaliation anytime soon,” Fawcett said, adding that some sort of retaliation is “absolutely inevitable”.
