Sirens go off in Tel Aviv as dozens of rockets fired towards city

Conflicts A- A A+

Earlier in the day, Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants threatened to attack Tel Aviv in response to an Israeli strike on a residential tower in Gaza. Cross-border tensions have intensified over the past 24 hours, as militants in the Palestinian enclave launched a volley of rockets towards Israel, prompting the country's military to retaliate, Sputnik reports. 

Three people, including a child, have been injured near Tel Aviv as a volley of rockets was fired towards the city, a local ambulance service told Sputnik.

A Sputnik correspondent earlier reported that the air raid sirens went off in Tel Aviv as dozens of rockets could be seen being intercepted in the sky by the Iron Dome missile defence system.

Soon after the alert, Hamas said it had fired 130 rockets towards Tel Aviv.

Israel’s Channel 12 TV reported that one rocket hit a building in the Holon suburb of the city.
