Rockets Launched at Tel Aviv

Israeli air strikes hit Gaza after rocket fire three killed

The press service of the Israel Defence Forces confirmed that the sirens had sounded for the first time since summer 2014.

"No interceptions were made by aerial defense systems". Israeli media said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was convening senior military and security officers to evaluate the situation.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility in the enclave, where its dominant Hamas group has been engaged in talks with Egypt on a long-term ceasefire with Israel. "It is responsible for what happens within the Strip and what emanates from it". Video broadcast on Israeli TV showed two Israeli interceptor missiles streaking into the sky above Tel Aviv, Israel's commercial capital, and detonating.

The Municipality of Tel-Aviv, as well as several other cities in central Israel announced they are opening all public bomb shelters in the wake of the rocket fire.

A statement by the Hamas armed wing said it was "not responsible for the firing of the rockets tonight towards the enemy". Late Thursday, local media said that Egyptian mediators left the territory. The Hamas administration vowed to "take measures" against those behind the salvo, which it described as violating the "factional and national consensus" governing Gaza.

The anniversary of the Gaza border protests is in two weeks, on March 30 and Palestinian groups have been preparing events and march to mark the date. "We will do anything necessary to restore security and quiet to the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip and to the south in general".
