Rockets Launched at Tel Aviv

Air Raid Warning Sirens Go Off In Tel Aviv After Apparent Gaza Rocket Attack

"Two launches from the Gaza Strip toward Israeli territory were registered", the IDF press service said in a press release.

Reuters journalists heard explosions, but it was unclear whether they were caused by the rockets or the interceptor missiles fired by Israel's Iron Dome system.

It would be the first time that Tel Aviv has been targeted by rocket fire since a 2014 war against Gaza militants.

CBS News has confirmed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is also Israel's defense minister, is holding an urgent security meeting with his military chief and other senior advisers in wake of the rocket launches.


There was no immediate claim of responsibility in the Gaza Strip, where its dominant Hamas group was engaged on Thursday in talks with Egypt on a long-term ceasefire with Israel.

The attacks came as Gaza rulers Hamas sought to contain riots by Palestinians in the coastal enclave and security experts in Israel speculated that the domestic disturbances could lead the terror group to strike Israel as a diversion.

A post on social media apparently shows two rockets streaking through the night sky above Tel Aviv. "It's time to defeat Hamas, it's time to demilitarize the Gaza Strip", he said. Bomb shelters were opened across the city in response to the attack.

Tensions between the Israelis and the Palestinians near the fence separating Gaza from Israel have been mounting since last March, which marked the beginning of the Great March of Return.
