Rocket sirens sound in Tel Aviv, explosions reported

Explosions were reported and rocket sirens went off in Tel Aviv on Thursday, local media reported. Additionally, the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) confirmed on its Twitter account that air raid sirens sounded in the Israeli capital and the surrounding areas. Locals stated that they heard two blasts.

The Israeli armed forces pointed out that two rockets at least were fired at Israel, adding that the Iron Dome missile defense intercepted one of them. Meanwhile, a Gaza source told Haaretz that the rockets originated from the northern part of the territory, but it remains unclear at this time who fired it.

The incident comes after tensions reported last weekend, when a rocket was launched into Israel from Gaza. IDF responded to the provocation by carrying out airstrikes in Gaza pointed at Hamas posts.
